Become a Member

Membership in the Colonial Theatre is an affordable way to ensure that great film and performance are accessible in our community. When you become a member of the Colonial Theatre, you belong to the only venue that presents both film and live performance in Chester County. Our membership is a community of over 800 film and arts lovers.

Membership contributions make our day-to-day operations possible, ensuring the continuance of our 112-year old historic theatre. They are also an investment with greater community impact. This is because arts and cultural centers are central to community revitalization and economic development efforts. Visitors to venues like the Colonial Theatre spend additional dollars at surrounding local businesses.
