Spend a Week at the Colonial Jul 20 – Jul 26

We here at Blobfest central are recovering from a fabulous weekend! The ‘fest was a huge success this year and we thank all of you for coming. If you missed the Run Out, local video news coverage can be seen here and here. It was also recorded here by our own videographer Bob Sweeney. Congratulations to Garry Lucas, winner of the raffle for 2 theatre seats! We sold over 1,000 raffle tickets and made over $850, which will benefit YOUR Colonial Theatre! Thanks so much to everyone who participated.

Our new feature this week is Bernie. This film is a black comedy with great performances by Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine. Tonight is your last chance to see Moonrise Kingdom at 7:30.

Following our feature Friday night, Jul 20, we’re screening our cult classic Dazed and Confused. Movie buffs note: The same director (Richard Linklater) directed BOTH of Friday’s movies.

Please note – there will be no screening Thur night, Jul 26. That night, our friends the Firebird Children’s Theatre will be rehearsing for their amazing show The Wizard of Oz! and The Trouble in Oz!. Performances will be here on Jul 27 and 28. Click here for tickets and showtimes.

Tickets are NOW on sale for TEDxPhoenixville, taking place Oct 6. The theme for 2012 is Your Backyard. You may purchase your tickets online, over the phone or at the box office.

Saturday night, in addition to our feature in the main auditorium, Apartment 1014 Films presents The 10 Room Bizarro in the third floor screening room. It is a collection of 10 bizarre short films. Tickets are only available at the door and seating is limited to 50.

Sunday at 2PM we are screening a different kind of classic: The Secret Cinema presents a collection of forgotten advertising films, theatrical short subjects, clips and trailers in a program called The Secret Secret Cinema. Join us for some kitchy film fun (but be aware that there is some nudity). Our classic series returns next week with Westworld.

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