In contrast to last week’s fun romp through the early days of British rock and roll, this musical milestone (produced fifteen years after “A Hard Day’s Night”) places the emphasis on the sense of alienation and disillusionment felt by British teens in the early 1960s, during their Mods vs. Rockers phase. Inspired by The Who’s rock opera, and featuring “My Generation” and other driving themes, this is a fascinating combination of British angry young man drama and hard-rocking More »

10 Year Anniversary Screening! “In the London of “Shaun Of The Dead,” dead-eyed city-dwellers shamble through the streets. Thoughtlessly, they make their way from place to place, sometimes alone, sometimes in clusters. Their glazed eyes suggest no purpose beyond mindless repetition. Eventually, some of them even turn into zombies. Director/co-writer Edgar Wright and star/co-writer Simon Pegg squeeze a lot of jokes into their horror comedy, but none quite as sharp as the one that slowly unfolds More »

Every monster needs a bride, or so the saying goes. Bela Lugosi (paid a paltry $1,000) stars here as Dr. Vornoff, a mad scientist who horribly burns lovely ladies with atomic radiation. Why would he do this? To create his own army of super creatures, of course (apparently Lugosi had never read a Captain America comic). He’s capably assisted by the mad beast Lobo (played by MST3K mainstay Tor Johnson) in an unclear quest for….something. Joel and the bots More »

“Tofu-eating proponents of PC can look forward to the future with confidence, at least if they live in Los Angeles. According to “Demolition Man,” LA (actually, San Angeles) in the year 2035 will be a place where violence is unheard of, “hello” has been replaced by the phrase “mellow greetings,” and everything “bad for you”–cigarettes, alcohol, hamburgers, coffee, sugar–has been outlawed.
Somewhat out of place in this anemic paradise are John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone), a maverick cop, and Simon More »

Fri, Nov 28 thru Mon, Dec 1 -- Roll over to view showtimes.
The end of November brings many cherished traditions: Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends, shopping with the crazed masses on Black Friday, watching parades and football games, and gathering at the Colonial to watch one of the funniest (and most quotable) comedies of all time,“Monty Python and the Holy Grail!” Perhaps the Pythons’ finest film, this cult classic puts an absurdist spin on the King Arthur legend complete with silly swordplay, horseless horseplay, a killer bunny, and a band of knights More »
