Spend a Week at the Colonial: Jan 15 – 21


Did you hear that we’re starting to offer all reserved seating at concerts?! The first reserved show is Al Stewart on Fri, May 14. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online. More info about ticket prices is here.

Our Third Annual Robert Burns Memorial Whisky Tasting is coming up fast! It’s Fri, Jan 29 at 6PM at Franklin Commons. This event is a fun way to support the Colonial (and drink whisky, and eat chocolate and cheese, and socialize – need we say more?!) All proceeds will help fund our Classics on Sundays film series. Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased online. (They make a pretty cool gift!) Email Mary if you have any questions about this event.

The Maid has its last screening tonight at 7:30PM. The Young Victoria starts tomorrow, Friday, at 7:30PM. We’ve just booked Up in the Air to start on Feb 5.

On Saturday at 2PM we’re showing A League of Their Own (1992), the feisty and funny baseball movie for girls starring Geena Davis, Tom Hanks and Madonna. Then, on Sunday at 2PM we’ve got a more serious, but no less extraordinary dance film than last week’s — The Red Shoes (1948). It’s a new print too so it should look gorgeous!

A clarification for our First Friday Fright Night fans – our screening in March of Zombie (1979, Lucio Fulci) will be on the First Friday, March 5 at 9:45PM. In other FFFN news, Tom Whalen ( has designed an amazing, custom poster for our Aliens screening on Feb 5. We’ll have prints (11×17) available for $15 at the screening. I’m already plotting where to hang mine.

On the last Sunday of the month (Jan 31), we’re hosting a silent film screening / fundraiser for TOSDV, the organization behind our pipe organ restoration. They’re showing Steamboat Bill, Jr. (Buster Keaton, 1928) at 2PM. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.

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