Mar 27 – Apr 2


The 2009 Oscar Nominated Shorts start tomorrow (Friday) at 7:30PM and The Wrestler has its last screening tonight (Thursday) at 7:30PM. We are alternating between the animated and live action shorts each night, and we have concerts on Saturday and Sunday nights, so be sure to check the schedule below or online to confirm what's showing.

Beginning Apr 5, we're celebrating Spring Break with a slew of older films that celebrate high school angst, spring fever, and the thrill of sticking it to the man (or your parents, or teachers, or nemesis – you get the idea). You can see the Spring Break schedule on our website, in the both the Feature Films and Family Programs sections. The Class starts on Apr 10.

For the Children's Series on Saturday at 2PM we've got our last live performance of the regular season. John Hadfield returns to the Colonial with Monkeys in the House, a terrific, madcap show. Details below. In April, we're showing five terrific films (including two days of Indiana Jones double features) and then the Childrens' Series will be on hiatus until the Summer Series starts up in July.

This Sunday at 2PM we wrap our theme of Spying and Thieving classics with Diamonds are Forever at 2PM followed by the fantastic City Rhythm Orchestra playing Music to Spy By at 7PM.
