“An unsentimental elegy to the American West, “Sweetgrass” follows the last modern-day cowboys to lead their flocks of sheep up into Montana’s breathtaking and often dangerous Absaroka-Beartooth mountains for summer pasture. This astonishingly beautiful yet unsparing film reveals a world in which nature and culture, animals and humans, vulnerability and violence are all intimately meshed.” More»

Fri, Jun 4 thru Wed, Jun 9 -- Roll over to view showtimes.
“Set in a small fishing community in the Bronx with a large population of Italian-Americans, City Island is a warmly hilarious movie about family members and their secret hearts. Writer-director Raymond De Felitta (Two Family House) tells his story modestly, but his gift for laughs laced with charm and bristling humanity is utterly irresistible. More»

Wear your Colonial First Friday Fright Night T-Shirt to this screening and pay only $5 for your ticket!
“Cronos is a very stylish and sophisticated Mexican variation on some age-old themes. With the very names of his principal characters (Jesus Gris and Angel de la Guardia), Guillermo del Toro, the writer and director, signals the mordant playfulness of his film. Not every vampire has a granddaughter named Aurora, either. More»

Dustin Hoffman became an “overnight sensation” with his clever, underplayed portrayal of Benjamin Braddock, an innocent, overwhelmed recent college graduate adrift in the malaise of 60s southern California suburbia. More»

The ultimate Southern Rock band, their seven gold and three platinum albums have spawned classic hits like “Heard It In a Love Song,” “Fire On The Mountain,” “Can’t You See,” and “Take The Highway,” and their definitive blend of rock, rhythm & blues, jazz, country, and gospel has earned them hit singles on both the Billboard Country and Gospel charts. After nearly 30 yrs of touring they continue to be played on classic rock and country radio. More»

“Jacques Audiard’s febrile, engrossing prison thriller A Prophet opens the way tragedies often close, with a man forced to choose between his life and his soul. More»

Nominated for this year’s Best Animated Feature Oscar.
“If there’s an Oscar race that might be worth following this year, it’s the one for Best Animated Feature. Out of nowhere, The Secret of Kells, an enchantingly old-fashioned Irish upstart about a medieval boy monk who dreams of illuminating sacred books, has tucked itself into an already juicy lineup that features Coraline, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Up. I hope Academy voters are slipping DVDs of this little beauty into their players as we speak, because no one’s been working the room on behalf of this gorgeously mounted tale of enlightenment through art and courage.

Last year the Colonial brought you all three Lord of the Rings films. This year make a date with Doc, Marty and 1955! To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the original film the Colonial will bring you the entire trilogy in one day! All three films, back-to-back (well, with a half hour break for lunch) starting at noon. This could make for a cool thing to do with your dad on the day before Father’s Day! More»

Robert Redford, though growing in respect for his earlier screen roles, galloped to superstardom with this wonderful, humor-filled re-imagining of the classic screen western. Teaming Redford with the “equally beautiful” Paul Newman, and featuring Oscar winning dialogue by William Goldman, the film almost single-handedly gave rise to what is now termed the “buddy movie,” and made the team the most famous side-kicks since The Lone Ranger and Tonto.

As we gear up for our live TEDxPhoenixville event on Sep 25, we’d like to share some of our favorite TEDTalks with you. Join us for four different programs of compelling and inspiring talks that speak to our theme for September: Joy Ride. Each evening’s program will consist of pre-recorded TEDTalks plus one live performance. These salons will take place in the theatre’s newly renovated third floor space and are limited to 50 people.
The theme for Jul 20 is PASSION, and we are excited to have Loretta Bilieux as our live performer.
Since her escape from Catholic school, Loretta Bilieux has been passionately singing on stage under a variety of aliases, composing music and scratching lyrics in loose leaf notebooks. When she’s not building fantastical stages on which to perform, she can be found launching water balloons and building bonfires.

Fri, Jun 25 thru Thu, Jul 1 -- Roll over to view showtimes.
“The past continually forces its way into the present in “The Secret in Their Eyes,” an attractive, messy drama riddled with violence and edged with comedy that comes with a hint of Grand Guignol, a suggestion of politics and three resonant, deeply appealing performances. More»

With a cast that features a young Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep and Christopher Walken (all of whom were nominated for Oscars, with Walken taking home a Best Supporting award), this is a movie filled with breakout roles. More»
