the colonial theatre marquee

Jun 5 – 11


The last screening of Shall We Kiss? is tonight at 7:30PM. Tomorrow night (Friday) we’ve got the Southside Johnny concert, and then on Saturday we start a week run of the new Star Trek! (Remember last year when we showed Iron Man in June? We could be starting something here…) Here’s how the rest of the summer is shaping up for film:

  • Jun 13: Earth
  • Jun 19: Sin Nombre
  • Jun 26: Hunger
  • Jul 3: Goodbye Solo
  • Jul 17: Lemon Tree
  • Jul 24: Sugar
  • Jul 31: Summer Hours

In addition to Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes performing tomorrow night, we have two other great concerts this month: Jake Shimabukuro on Friday, Jun 12 and Cowboy Junkies on Wednesday, Jun 17. Tickets are still available for all three shows.

On Sunday at 2PM we start our month of Movies to See with Dad with a Three Stooges show. We’re showing Have Rocket, Will Travel; Where’s Our Mummy? and Spook Louder. The show is being presented by Danny Atkinson — a huge Stooges AND Colonial fan!

I’m getting pretty excited about the Lord of the Rings Marathon! We’re showing all three films on 35mm starting at 10AM on Sun, Jun 21. Advance tickets are available and recommended. You can also pre-order a box lunch to eat in between the first and second films. All the details are on our website.

The website upgrade is complete (well, almost). There are a few more details we’re taking care of behind the scenes, but the hard part is over. You likely won’t notice much of a change — which is a good thing. The upgrade was more about the background architecture than the GUI. One thing that you will notice and that many of you have been asking for is that now you can click on the “Zoom” button on the event calendar (which is along the right hand side of each page) and get a full month view at a time! You can also subscribe to the calendar’s RSS feed to it will automatically update your iCal, or Google calendar or whatever tool you use. We will have instructions on how to do that coming shortly.

You can also now officially buy your advance BlobFest tickets online!

One last programming note — the Bacon Brothers are coming back! They will be here with their band on Saturday, October 10 to perform their third benefit concert for us and The French and Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust!

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