Vintage Parkville-Overlea: The Colony Theater

No guessing game this week, just some photos of an iconic Parkville movie theater.

Readers of a certain age will almost certainly immediately recognized the iconic Parkville theater shown in the photos above.

So this week there's no guessing game, just some excellent photos of Parkville-Overlea history.

Special thanks to Edward McKenna, who posted these photos of the Colony Theater to the Facebook group "You Know You're From Parkville, Md When..."

These days, the building serves as the VFW Hall that residents will recognize from their commutes up and down Harford Road.

I went there all the time with my sister when we were little kids. My first movie there was "Monster from Green Hell", and I think the matinee ticket price was 25 cents!

I remember watching the original "Planet of the Apes" there.
