Pray the Devil Back to Hell

The very well reviewed documentary, Pray the Devil Back to Hell (above), starts tomorrow, Friday, at 7:30PM. It traces the extraordinary efforts of Liberia's women (both Muslim and Christian) to end the brutal civil war between dictator Charles Taylor's government and the rural rebel forces that sought his downfall in 2003. Please note that there will be no screenings on Wednesday, May 13 due to the Dickey Betts concert. On May 15 we start a run of Gomorrah, the gritty Italian mafia film that won the Grand Prize at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.

Sunshine Cleaning has it's last screening tonight at 7:30PM.

It's hard to believe, but this October we celebrate ACT's 10th Anniversary as owners and stewards of the Colonial Theatre. We're working on a short film about the theatre and we would like to have your input. If you have photos, film/video footage, or stories about the Colonial that you would like to share, please let us know! You can email me or Mary, or give us a call at 610-917-1228. Spread the word!
