Processing Fee

ACT purchased a ticketing system in order to offer patrons conveniences such as online ticket sales, credit card sales, reserved seating for concerts, easy ticket exchanges, ticketing history, etc. The processing fee helps us cover the cost of this system as well as credit card processing. This fee is charged for online, phone, and in-person purchases.

Refund Policy

All sales are final. Tickets are non-refundable. Film tickets may be exchanged for another regular film screening at the box office.

Ticket Resales

Tickets must be purchased directly from The Colonial Theatre via the box office, phone, or Colonial website. Resold tickets will be canceled. Tickets purchased from third party resellers are not the responsibility of the Colonial Theatre. As such, any refunds must be processed directly through the third-party reseller.
