Jul 31 – Aug 6


Sugar has its last screening tonight at 7:30PM. Tomorrow (Friday) we start a one week run of Summer Hours. After that, we’ve got Moon on Aug 7 and Food, Inc. on Aug 14.

A note about Food, Inc. – Liz Andersen, founder of the Phoenixville Farmers’ Market, is putting together a panel for our film discussion that week. 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 it’s a new month, and we have two new themes for the Classics on Sundays series. The first three Sundays are devoted to Clark Gable and Jean Harlow. We’re screening Red Dust (1932) this Sunday at 2PM, followed by China Seas (1935) on Aug 9 and Wife vs. Secretary (1936, DVD) on Aug 16.

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 local musician Mike Schuler on Tue, Aug 4 at 10:30AM. Tickets are just $5 per person and will be available at the door. Upcoming shows in this series are The Zany Umbrella Circus on Aug 11, an amazing musical performer Christylez Bacon on Aug 18, and our favorite balloon freak, John Cassidy, on Aug 25. Advance purchase tickets to these upcoming shows are available on our website. Don’t miss this fantastic line-up!!

August means Philadelphia Magazine’s annual Best of Philly issue and we got a mention again this year! Yay us! You’ll find us on page 154 under “Way to Spend a Sunday – Bridge Street, Phoenixville.” Thanks to Philly Mag and to all of you who participate in making the Colonial the super cool place that it is!

Finally, a 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!
