May 1 – 7

Kurt Russell in The Thing

Sunshine Cleaning starts tonight at 7:30PM. It's also First Friday Fright Night and we're showing John Carpenter's The Thing (1982, pictured above), on 35mm, at 9:45PM. The very well reviewed documentary, Pray the Devil Back to Hell, starts on Friday, May 8.

In concert news, we've just booked the Genesis tribute band, Trespass, for Saturday, Aug 8. Advance tickets are $23 and will go on sale this Saturday at noon.

On Sunday at 2PM, in celebration of Mother's Day, we start our month of Movies to See with Mom with Stella Dallas (1937) starring the amazing Barbara Stanwyck. Please note that we are now screening this film on DVD because MGM sent us the wrong print (they sent the 1920's silent version) and we would not be able to get the right one in time. Hope you will still join us!

It's hard to believe, but this October we celebrate ACT's 10th Anniversary as owners and stewards of the Colonial Theatre. We're working on a short film about the theatre and we would like to have your input. If you have photos, film/video footage, or stories about the Colonial that you would like to share, please let us know! You can email me or Mary, or give us a call at 610-917-1228. Spread the word!

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