the colonial theatre marquee

Jan 16 – 22

Do the Right Thing (Universal Pictures)

Tickets are going quick, but still available for the Whisky Tasting on Friday, Jan 23 at 6pm — a fundraiser to support the Colonial. Your contribution to the theatre, not to mention the whisky, will warm you from the inside out during this cold spell!

If you are not heading down to Washington for the Presidential Inauguration, but would like to watch it with others, the Colonial is working on showing it on the big screen. The only glitch is we won't know till Friday around 4pm if we can technically pull it off. So call us this Friday to find out if we can do it, and hopefully we will see you there! You can reach us at 610-917-1228. We will also send out an email to let you know we can do it, and will post it on our website. There will be no charge for this screening.

Our next feature is A Christmas Tale, a French film about a dysfunctional family holiday starring Catherine Deneuve. It's first screening is tomorrow, Friday, at 7:30. More info and showtimes are below. Let the Right One In has it's last screening tonight at 7:30. We've pushed back Rachel Getting Married to Feb 13 so we can bring you Slumdog Millionaire, starting on Jan 23.

Our next family program is the classic kid-friendly western Shane (1953) on Saturday at 2pm. The film stars Alan Ladd as the gunfighter idolized by a prairie family's young son.
Continuing our Errol Flynn theme for the month, on Sunday at 2:00 we're screening a lesser seen film on the Flynn resume – The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939), also starring Bette Davis.

We've have a couple of special screenings coming up — on Monday, Jan 19, Martin Luther King Day, at 2:00 we're screening Do The Right Thing (1989), Spike Lee's brilliant take on race relations in Brooklyn. Time Magzine included DTRT in their list of the 25 most important films on race. Then, on Monday, Feb 16, President's Day, we're showing Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) the Frank Capra / Jimmy Stewart classic about an idealistic senator who tries to change Washington. Thanks for your support and we'll see you at the theatre!
