Spend a Week at the Colonial: Jan 22 – 28

WestSideStory

In concert news, we’ve just added a second all reserved seating show: Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra on Sat, May 8. Ticket information will be coming soon. Tickets are still available for The British Invasion Tribute coming up on Sat, Jan 30 at 8PM and they’re just $20!

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.

The Young Victoria is staying with us for another week. Emily Blunt and Rupert Friend are lovely to watch as the idealistic and righteous Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Next up: Invictus starting on Jan 29, Up in the Air starting on Feb 5, and the Oscar Nominated Short Films starting on Feb 19.

On Saturday at 2PM we’re showing Pride and Prejudice (2005) starring Kiera Knightly. We could probably have a fierce debate after the screening about the virtues of this version compared to the marvelous BBC version — who’s in?! Then, on Sunday at 2PM we’ve got one of the best dance films of all time, West Side Story (1961).

Last night Tom Whalen (strongstuff.net) dropped off a large version of his Aliens poster and it is brilliant! Come check it out in our poster case on Bridge Street. We’ll have prints (11×17) available at the Aliens screening (Feb 5 at 9:45PM) for $10 and Tom will be on hand to sign them!

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.

Calling all Colonial members! Our Sixth Annual Members’ Oscar Party is coming up 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. Details will be sent out in a separate email next week, so keep an eye out for that.

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