Spend a Week at the Colonial: Apr 16 – 22


The White Ribbon has its last screening tonight at 7:30PM. Tomorrow night (Friday) we’re pleased to host the Mr. Movie Film Fest: Forbidden Planet at 7:30PM. At 8PM on Saturday night, Tempest, Coyote Run and Burning Bridget Cleary hit the stage for a rocking, celtic concert. Then, on Sunday night at 7PM we’ve got City Rhythm Orchestra‘s tribute to Frank Sinatra and Count Basie. CRO was a huge hit as our stage band at our Oscar party – come on out to experience the full 15-piece band.

Avatar is coming in on Monday for a short run – with screenings on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday only. On Tuesday night, we’re helping Sphere College celebrate their one year anniversary with a screening of Living in Oblivion at 7:30PM. The festivities actually get started around 6PM so do come early.

The Last Station starts on Apr 23, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starts on May 1, and Sweet Grass starts on May 28.

Our Young Audiences show for this Saturday (2PM) is a Colonial favorite, The Princess Bride (1987). And, it’s a new print! Next week we wrap up our season with The Wizard of Oz on Apr 24. We do, however, have one live family performance scheduled this spring: Village Productions and Tri-PAC present Rapunzel, directed by Phoenixvillian Tom Bissinger, on Sat, May 15 at 7PM. Tickets are $17 / $15 / $13 and are available online. I’ve also posted all of our Children’s Summer Series shows to our website, including info on the Chinese Palace Lantern Workshop with Hua Hua Zhang in July.

On Sunday at 2PM our baseball month continues with Field of Dreams at 2PM.

Ticketing update: As of Apr 30 our lowest ticket price ($4) will increase to $5. This is our first increase of the member/child ticket price in 10 years and we hope you will agree that it is still affordable. The first film to be affected by the increase is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which starts on May 1. Please note that this increase will also affect the films in the Young Audiences Series starting next October.

Concert update: Real Diamond has been moved to Friday, Jun 11 at 8PM. (The show was originally scheduled for Jun 12).

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