OPENED: 5/6/40; "Alias the Deacon." CLOSED: 1987.

When the Colonial Theatre (1923-1939) was destroyed by fire on Christmas Day 1939, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Rudolph immediately went to work finding a new location for the theatre they'd owned since 1934. They chose the Hanna Building, and showed a few movies at Bonfils Auditorium while the new facility was being prepared.

The Trojan closed in 1987, and the interior has been converted to an accounting office. A small space to the left of the entrance has become a pawn shop. A ticket machine still stands in the lobby, and a "Matinee" sign hangs over the ticket booth in which the pawn shop displays its wares.
