Spend a Week at the Colonial: Sep 3 – 9


It is a very busy week here at the theatre! We are carrying over I Am Love one more week. We have First Friday Fright Night tomorrow, a special movie festival on Saturday, and a new classics theme beginning on Sunday. Please note that we will be CLOSED on Monday for Labor Day.

Our FFFN screening of House is tomorrow at 10PM and sets the stage for our Asian Horror mini fest on Saturday! You know that crazy cat on the House poster? We’ve got a few large sticker versions to give away at the screening.

The Asian Horror Fest is this Saturday! Join us Sep 4 for three very different films that range from classic monster mayhem to genre pastiche to unrelenting gore: Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster, Big Trouble in Little China, and Audition. Adults: $8 per screening or $20 for all three; Students/Seniors: $6 per screening or $15 for all three; Members: $5 per screening or $10 for all three.

Following the Asian Horror Fest, join us in celebrating 20th Century Fox’s 75th Anniversary with a special screening of Night Shyamalan’s The Happening starring Mark Wahlberg on Saturday, Sept 4 at 7:30PM. Filmed locally, the theatre’s presentation includes a visit from the owners of the G Lodge, which was used as a location in the film.

Our Classic Series for September honors the Akira Kurosawa Centennial with double features each Sunday. We begin on Sept 5 with Stray Dog at 2PM and Rashomon at 4:30PM. All the films for this series will be screened on 35mm.

We’ve added two live acts to our schedule: comedienne Suzanne Westenhoefer on October 23 and musician Leo Kottke on December 10. Read about them below or at the website. Tickets on sale now.
