the colonial theatre marquee

Jun 20 – 26

Tonight's your last chance to see The Visitor (at 7:30pm) which Mary highly recommends! Starting tomorrow, Friday, we've got Young @ Heart, the documentary about a choral group of octogenarians that sing not only rock and roll, but punk, funk and pop too.

As part of BlobFest '08, The Colonial Theatre is holding a Steve McQueen Look-Alike Contest this Sunday, June 22, immediately after the 2pm screening of The Great Escape starring Steve McQueen. The winner, the person with the best combination of physical resemblance and embodiment of McQueen's brand of "cool," will receive a $500 cash prize and the chance to "star" as McQueen during BlobFest, July 11 – 13. Call 610-917-1228 to register. Winner must be available BlobFest weekend.

It's not too late to enter our amateur Blob-themed filmmaking competition. The deadline for submissions for the Shorty Awards has been extended to June 25th. The Shorty Awards, named for The Blob's director, Irvin (Shorty) Yeaworth, will be given in three age categories: 13 and under, 14-17 and 18 and up. Family-friendly entries, no more than five minutes long, should be submitted on DVD to: Mary Foote, The Colonial Theatre, 227 Bridge Street, Phoenixville, PA 19460. All submissions should include filmmaker's name, age, address, email and phone number. For additional information, check out the BlobFest Events page of our website.

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