We're holding on to The Band's Visit (Israel, 2007) for a second week.This film has garnered terrific reviews and won multiple international awards. More information is below.

We've got some pretty cool things happening this weekend. On Friday we're kicking off our First Friday Fright Night series with Night of the Living Dead (1968, George Romero). Screening time is 9:45pm and ticket prices are the same as always — $4 – $7. On Saturday night, we have a comedy show at 8pm, The Second City: One Nation Under Blog. Tickets are $17 – $25 and will be available at the door. Please note that the 4pm show was canceled, but those tickets will be honored at the 8pm show.

There will be no children's series program today, but next week we are thrilled to have puppet artist and choreographer Hua Hua Zhang back to perform East Meets West II: The Journey Continues. I'm sure all who came to see East Meets West last year can attest to how extraordinary, poignant, and funny her puppetry vignettes are — Hua Hua is truly a masterful artist. More information is below.

For the classics this month, we're showing our favorite Terry Gilliam films starting with Time Bandits on Apr 6 at 2pm. This is a great film to bring your kids or grandchildren to.

And now, a traffic report. We're all understandably frustrated by the increased congestion in town, and the seemingly diminishing parking spaces. But, the town is addressing it — a parking authority is in the works. So our patience will pay off! However, the Gay Street bridge (the high bridge, Rt. 113) is closing this week — it's getting demolished and rebuilt. This project is scheduled to take 2 years. So, things are going to be hairy for a while. Please, don't let this inconvenience keep you away from Phoenixville! The Colonial and the merchants will need your continued support more than ever.

Thanks for your support and we'll see you at the theatre!
