Spend a week at the Colonial: Apr 23 – 29


The Last Station starts tomorrow night at 7:30PM. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starts on May 1, The Ghost Writer starts on May 21, and Sweet Grass starts on May 28.

We’re planning a special film/book discussion of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on Sunday, May 2 after the 4:15PM screening. The discussion will be lead by Jason, owner of Wolfgang Books, and Nikki who leads the literary fiction discussions at Wolfgang’s. More details to follow.

This Saturday at 2PM we wrap up our Young Audiences 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 bows out with The Natural at 2PM. Next month gets a little scrappy – our them is Bette vs. Joan (that’s Davis and Crawford). We’re particularly excited about our screening of Johnny Guitar on May 23. We’re showing Paramount’s archive print so don’t miss this rare opportunity to see this film on film.

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: Three newly booked shows go on sale this Saturday: The Marshall Tucker Band on Jun 10, an all-star A Cappella show on Jun 12, and Guitar Masters featuring Eric Johnson, Andy McKee and Peppino D’Agostino on Oct 13. Details are on our concerts & events page.

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