Theater’s name is up to Peoples Bank

March 26, 2013
The Marietta Times

The Hippodrome-Colony Historical Theatre Association wants to honor the Peoples Bank. However, retaining the name would seem more in keeping with our heritage and a way to honor the dedication of the association, local volunteers, and donors who have given their time and money to the restoration. When completed, part of the attraction of the Colony Theater would be for patrons to experience a "step back in time" to a theater of the 1920s that was equipped for a Broadway show or for vaudeville acts. Why give a new name to a restoration project? The Peoples Bank Theatre suggests a name dedicated to a modern building with a large donor, not a restored venue of vintage interest. Unfortunately, the name also makes the bank appear self-serving rather than altruistic.
