The last screening of Hunger is tonight at 7:30PM. Tomorrow night (Friday) we start a TWO week run of Goodbye Solo. It’s also First Friday Fright Night and to get ourselves in the proper kitschy state-of-mind for BlobFest, we’re showing an Ed Wood Double Feature – Bride of the Monster and Plan 9 from Outer Space! Show time is 9:45PM.

We will be CLOSED on Saturday. Happy Fourth of July to all!

Our classic film on Sunday at 2PM is 4-D Man (1959), the first of our Filmed in Phoenixville series this month. 4-D Man was directed by Shorty Yeaworth (The Blob) and we’re very lucky to have Shorty’s son, Kris, in the area. Kris will be here on Sunday with props and photos and to introduce the film.

BlobFest is next weekend (Jul 10 -12) and tickets are available for advance purchase online, but through 5PM on Thu, Jul 9 only. After that, you will need to come to the box office to buy your tickets with cash only.

Voting for the BlobFest Shorty Awards Fan Favorite will begin shortly on our website. Please keep checking back here. Our apologies for the delay.

Our Children’s Summer Series gets underway next week with a performance by the fabulous Cat’s Pajamas on Tue, Jul 7 at 10:30AM. They’ll have whisker painting and tattoos aplenty to help kick off the series. Tickets are just $5 per person.

In concert news, Nick Lowe has just been booked to play the Colonial on Sun, Oct 11! Ticket information will be available soon.

Here’s some exciting news! Miller DesignWorks is working on a short documentary about the first 10 years of ACT operating the Colonial Theatre. They are very talented folks so we look forward to a piece that will convey all the energy and enthusiasm that all of you have brought to the Colonial over the years. We are inviting you to share your stories with us — why you love participating in life at the Colonial, what the Colonial means to Phoenixville and to you, and what your hopes are for our future. If you have video footage, photographs, or a story you want to share with the filmmakers, please call or email us. We’d love to hear from you!

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