We’ve got a lot of news this week, so be sure to read on! Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work has its last screening tonight at 7:30PM. On Friday, we start with Winter’s Bone in the main auditorium at 7:30PM and The Greening of Southie in the 3rd floor Screening Room at 8:30PM.

The circus is in town! Bring the kids to the final show in the Children’s Summer Series, Zany Umbrella Circus on Tuesday at 10:30AM. Here is a link to a great circus “study guide” for kids, containing questions and answers, a page for coloring and more cool kid stuff!

Mark your calendars! Celebrate 20th Century Fox’s 75th Anniversary at the Colonial Theatre with a special screening of The Happening on Saturday Sept 4 at 7:30PM. Filmed locally, the theatre’s presentation includes special guests such as the owners of the G Lodge, which was a location in the film. More information on event guests and festivities to be announced.

The Colonial Theatre participates in the Phoenixville Green Festival tomorrow, Friday August 20. The Festival takes place downtown from 6:00-9:00PM and as part of it, the Theatre will present a FREE viewing of The Greening of Southie, sponsored by Phoenixville Federal Bank. There will be a discussion immediately following the film in the Screening Room. This film is unedited and may contain some language unsuitable for children.

Our Festival Classic this week is Woodstock, Sunday Aug 22 at 2PM. Come view the Director’s Cut of the definitive festival concert of the 60s.

A reminder to cult fans: Rocky Horror Picture Show tickets are on sale. Get your tickets for the October 16th show now.

The Asian Horror Fest is coming soon! Join us September 4 for three very different films that range from classic monster mayhem, to genre pastiche, to unrelenting gore. We’re thinking of it as a bento box of Asian (and Asian-inspired) cinema. Tickets on sale now.

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