the colonial theatre marquee

May 9 – 15

John Sayles' latest film, Honeydripper, begins at the Colonial this Friday and runs through next Thursday. On Friday night, come early (around 7pm) for a free concert before the film. All students will be admitted for FREE on Friday night only.

For our kids' program at 2pm on Saturday we're very happy to welcome Fiddlekicks for their premiere performance at the Colonial, consisting of a live band and 13 dancers doing clogging of all different styles. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for members of the theatre and kids. This is bound to be a lively and impressive performance!

Please note that the 200 block of Bridge Street (in front of the Colonial) will be closed this Saturday for the Second Annual Celtic Street Fair. Saturday is also opening day of the Phoenixville Farmers' Market, so it should be a great day to be in town, with lots to do. Please plan your driving time and parking time accordingly. Yesterday, I added a pdf that you can download from the Directions & Parking section of our website to help with your trip to Phoenixville. Thanks to Tom Bromley of Centre Grafik for his great design!

On Saturday night, the Celtic Street Fair culminates with a concert by Brother and Scythian at the Colonial at 7:30pm. Doors will open at 6:30pm. Tickets are $22 and will be available at the door.

This Sunday at 2pm we continue our month of classic Sherlock Holmes films with a double feature – The Secret Weapon (1942) and The Scarlet Claw (1944). The total running time for this program is about 142 min. Film prints courtesy of the UCLA Film Archive.

On Sunday at 5pm join the Theatre Organ Society of the Delaware Valley for a tribute concert to former TOSDV president Harry Linn. The program is free and will include a presentation about the Wurlitzer that the TOSDV has been restoring and will install in the Colonial this fall, which is sitting in our lobby and looking rather grand!

Lastly, I've added lots of information about this year's BlobFest to our website. There are still details to fill in, but the basics are there, and it's looking to be a great weekend. 

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