Spend a Week at the Colonial: May 28 – Jun 3


The Ghost Writer has its last screening tonight (Thursday) at 7:30PM. Sweetgrass starts tomorrow, Friday; City Island starts on Jun 4, The Secret of Kells (a beautiful animated film for kids and adults) on Jun 18, Mid-August Lunch on Jul 2, and Lbs. (directed by a former BlobFest Shorty Award winner) starts on Jul 12.

A note about bringing your children to see Sweetgrass: while the film is not rated and is a pastoral about sheep with very little dialogue, there is some salty language between the cowboys.

Our month of pitting Joan Crawford against Bette Davis comes to an end this Sunday with The Letter at 2PM. Next week is a new month and a new theme – Breakout Roles. We’re showing The Graduate, Funny Girl, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and The Deer Hunter.

Memorial Day: We’ll be closed and hoping you all enjoy the holiday!

TEDxPhoenixville: We are positively thrilled that our Tuesday night TEDTalks salons have been such a success; so much so that we’ve added one more. Tickets will go on sale tomorrow morning at 10AM for our fourth salon, on Jul 20 at 7PM. The theme will be PASSION.

BlobFest: We’re starting to recruit volunteers for this year’s fest happening Jul 9 -11. If you’re interested in helping out, send an email to Mary. Also, the deadline for submitting your short film for our Shorty contest is fast approaching – June 15. The holiday weekend sounds like a perfect time to make a film about the Blob!

We’re hiring!: The Colonial has a part-time Patron Services Manager position available. You can read all about here. If interested, please email your resume to Mary by TOMORROW, May 28.

Young Audiences: Our Summer Series brochure can be downloaded from our website. Let us know if you would like one mailed to you. We still have a few spots available for our unique kids workshop with artist Hua Hua Zhang happening Jul 26 – 30. Finally, don’t forget to let your kids vote for which film they would like to see on Aug 3!

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