But, Mary will be here from about 10am – 12pm on Thursday for last minute ticket, membership and gift certificate sales. An Education starts on Sat, Dec 26 and The Maid starts on Jan 8. On Fri, Jan 1 we’re showing a restored print of The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) in our First Friday Fright Night slot at 9:45PM.

This Saturday at 2PM we’re showing Elf, starring Will Ferrell as an over-grown Christmas elf. Miracle on 34th Street is showing this Sunday at 2PM and The Polar Express is on Monday, Dec 28 at 2PM. (Elf and Polar Express will be screened on Blu-Ray and Miracle on 34th Street will be screened on DVD.) This wraps up our holiday screenings for the season. Happy Holidays to everyone!!

By the end of today I will have posted all of our classics, kids programs and special events for Jan – Mar to the website. It’s a great line-up so do check it out!

Our Third Annual Robert Burns Memorial Whisky Tasting is set for Fri, Jan 29 at 6PM. This event is a fun way to support the Colonial (and drink whisky, and eat chocolate and cheese, and socialize – need we say more?!) This year all proceeds are going to help fund our Classics on Sundays film series. Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased online. (They make a pretty cool gift!)

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