The Colonial is over 100 years old and definitely makes you feel like you are having a typical theater experience. Unfortunately up in the balcony some of the seating is such that people are always leaning forward to be able to see, which creates a domino effect of everyone else having to lean forward, too. The seats are not as cramped as at the neighboring Wang. It's also not a really huge theater, so even up in the balcony you can get a decent seat. It's also right across from the Boylston T stop, so very easy access by public transport (of course parking is a pain and expensive). Plenty of dining options around. If you can buy tickets in person at the box office, you'll save a bundle in fees.
