Aug 14 -20


Moon has its last screening tonight at 7:30PM. Tomorrow (Friday) we start a one week run of Food, Inc. After that, we’ve got The Hurt Locker on Aug 21, Seraphine on Aug 28, and In the Loop on Sep 18. (We’re still working on films for Sep 4 & 11).

Liz Andersen, organizer of the Phoenixville Farmers’ Market and owner of Charlestown Cooperative Farm, has put together a panel for our film discussion for Food, Inc. Please join us immediately after the 7:30PM screening on Wed, Aug 19 for what is sure to be an engaging and enlightening discussion about the film and food.

This Sunday at 2PM we’re showing our last Clark Gable and Jean Harlow film, Wife vs. Secretary (1936) which also stars one of my favorite actresses, Myrna Loy.

The last two Sundays of the month see the return of Spiritual Cinema sponsored by Wellsprings Congregation. This year they’ve picked Into the Wild (2007) for Aug 23 and Madagascar (2005) for Aug 30.

Our Children’s Summer Series continues with a show by the one man hip hop orchestra, Christylez Bacon on Tue, Aug 18 at 10:30AM. I’m really looking forward to this show! Tickets are just $5 per person and will be available at the door. Next Tuesday, John Cassidy is back with an even bigger show than he did the last time he was at the Colonial! The Children’s Series goes on hiatus for the month of September, but it’ll be back on Saturdays at 2PM starting in October. Look for the schedule on our website soon!

Parking update: As we continue to address the parking issues downtown, we’d like to say thank you to the following businesses who have opened up their lots for free parking on nights and weekends: One Bridge Plaza (347 Bridge Street, at Starr Street), Phoenixville Federal Bank & Trust (Main & Hall Streets), Borough Hall (140 Church Street), and Frees Insurance (120 Gay Street).

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