Ticketing FAQ

What’s the best way to buy tickets?

  • We encourage you to buy tickets online, in advance. You will pay the same fees no matter how or where you purchase. Note that online sales to Point Entertainment concerts end at 5PM on the day of the show. After 5PM on the day of the show please call 610-917-1228 to order tickets.

When do tickets become available online?

  • We add programs to the ticketing page every week. If you don’t see the show you’re looking for check back in a couple of days.
  • Generally, tickets to our weekly feature films will be available for online purchase on the Monday before the film starts.

What kinds of ticketing fees do you charge?

  • $2.00 per ticket Restoration Fee on live events
  • $1.50 per ticket Service Fee on live events
  • $1.00 per ticket Service Fee on some films

How are the fees applied?

  • There are no fees on feature, classic, documentary or young audiences film tickets.
  • The $1.00 per ticket service fee is added to Fright Night, Cult, Blobfest, marathon, and special film tickets.
  • The $1.50 per ticket Service Fee is added to all live event tickets.
  • The $2 per ticket Restoration Fee is added to all live event tickets, except for pipe organ concerts and live young audiences programs.

What is the Restoration Fee?

The restoration fee will be dedicated to funding those big ticket items that historic theatres constantly have to address (renovations, upgrades, improving accessibility, replacing equipment, etc). This is important as we continue to improve our theatre and bring more diverse programming to our community.

What is the Service Fee?

We had to purchase 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 service fee helps us cover the cost of this system as well as credit card processing.

How do I get my tickets if I buy online?

  • You will receive an email confirmation of your purchase to which your tickets will be attached as a pdf.
  • Add info@thecolonialtheatre.com to your address book so the email does not go into your junk mail folder.
  • Please have your ticket with you when you come to the theatre. With your ticket, you can bypass the box office window and go right up to the volunteer tearing tickets.
  • If you are unable to print your tickets or forget to bring them with you, check in at the box office with a photo I.D. and we will reprint them for you.

What types of payment do you accept?

A $25.00 fee applies to all returned checks. Please note: If you are mailing a check, it is required that you write your phone number and driver’s license number on the check. If we receive your check without the phone number and drivers license number, we will  return it to you. All mail orders are filled on a first come, first serve basis with whatever is best available in the price range you’ve selected. Seats cannot be reserved without payment.

Sold Out Shows & Rush Line Tickets

When a general admission show has sold out, rush tickets (that is, any remaining seats in the upper balcony) go on sale when all of our ticket holders are in and seated. Patrons are encouraged to arrive 45 minutes in advance of the performance to queue up. After the show has started and all of our ticket holders are in and seated, we will evaluate how many seats are open in the upper balcony and those seats will be made available on a first come, first served basis. Please note that leg room is limited in these seats. Rush tickets are priced the same as balcony tickets for that show. We accept cash only at the box office for rush tickets.
