Wendy and Lucy

Wendy and Lucy, starring Michelle Williams, starts tomorrow (Friday) at 7:30PM. Sunshine Cleaning starts on May 1.

Tonight (Thursday) is the Enter the Haggis concert at 8PM and on Saturday night we've got the Brain Damage (Pink Floyd tribute) concert at 7:30PM. Tickets will be available for each show at the door. Also, we've booked Cowboy Junkies for Jun 17 at 7:30PM!

On Sunday at 2PM we're wrapping up our month of Ealing Studios comedies with another Alec Guinness classic, The Ladykillers (1955). This film will be screened on DVD. Next week, in celebration of Mother's Day, we start our month of Movies to See with Mom with Stella Dallas (1937) starring the amazing Barbara Stanwyck.

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!

A note about film discussions: We have a group of folks who gather after the Wednesday night screening to discuss the film of the week. At this time, we do not have anyone who has the kind of film experience needed to conduct a film discussion. The group will continue to meet and if you would like be added to the email list for that group let us know. If you know anyone who could bring some perspective to a specific film or if you or someone you know would like to explore the idea of leading the film discussion group please let us know by emailing

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