In Downtown Pittsfield, the Colonial Theatre is one of the last of its kind. A true turn of the century classic theatre opened originally in 1903, has been brought back to life in August of 2006.
Now beautifully renovated, with original gilded art maintained, this ornate theatre has given Berkshire County a magical setting for Operas, Musicals, Ballets and Concerts.
Located at 111 South St in Pittsfield, it’s only minutes from the Yankee Inn and very easy to find. Parking is limited at the Theatre itself but nearby businesses graciously let theatre go-ers park for free! There are many treats to be found on South/ North Street. Art Galleries, live music, great dining options and quaint shops embellish the whole strip. Because of its great location, one can easily walk to many of the coffee shops and grab something delicious and hot to sip before the show, or just take a right out of the theatre and walk past the Berkshire Museum to Patrick’s Pub after the performance for a great dinner. Round the night out with a drink from their vast selection of Beer, Cocktails, and Wines. Of course, the Colonial also has a nice variety of concessions as well. Sounds like a perfect date night that will leave travelers feeling relaxed and fulfilled with a genuine night out in the Berkshires!
