Spend a Week at the Colonial: Feb 5 -11


Up in the Air starts tonight (Friday) at 7:30PM. It’s also First Friday which means Fright Night! At 10PM we’re screening a new 35mm print of Aliens (1996). Artist Tom Whalen will be here before the screening to sell limited editions of his custom Aliens poster — for just $10! The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus starts on Feb 12 and the Oscar Nominated Short Films starts on Feb 19. Please note that our Young Audiences show for this Saturday, East Meets West, has been CANCELED due to the impending snow storm. More details are below. All film screenings will go on as scheduled this weekend.

Speaking of the Oscars, the nominations were announced on Tuesday and you can see them all here. Start thinking about your picks and enter our Oscar Pool – ballots will be in the lobby starting this weekend.

Our Sixth Annual Members’ Oscar Party is on Sun, Mar 7 from 6PM until the awards show is over. We have some new and pretty cool things planned for this year’s party. If you are not already a member, please show us some love this February and help us reach our goal of signing up 100 new members by March 1 – join today! If you are already a member, or after you join, you can read all about the party and RSVP online.

Our Young Audiences show for this Saturday, East Meets West, has been CANCELED due to the impending snow storm. That’s the bad news. The good news is that we have tentatively rescheduled the performance to take place during our summer series — on Tue, Jul 27 at 10:30am. I also confirmed that this is the week that Hua Hua will teach an arts camp here at the theatre (Jul 26 – 30). Details will follow asap. All tickets to the Feb 6 performance will be honored at the Jul 27 performance. We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope you will be able to join us for the summer show.

On Sunday at 2PM we’re kicking off our month of Humphrey Bogart classics with Angels with Dirty Faces (1938), also starring James Cagney. The following Sunday, Feb 14, we’re showing Casablanca (1942) which was a big hit last Valentine’s weekend. The film is sponsored by Neumann University. Come a little early and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine courtesy of The Columbia Bar and Grille.

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