Spend a Week at the Colonial Jun 1 – Jun 7

We’ve got a few new concerts going on sale at 10AM tomorrow: Al Stewart fans – Al is back Friday, Oct 26 at 8PM! And Saturday Nov 10 at 8PM Point Entertainment presents Dr. Ralph Stanley & His Clinch Mountain Boys (most known from the soundtrack of Oh Brother Where Art Thou?). Tickets for Al Stewart can be purchased online here and for Dr. Ralph Stanley here. You may also purchase tickets over the phone or at the box office.

Remember, tickets for the 13th annual Blobfest (July 13-15) ALSO go onsale tomorrow at 10AM. You may purchase them online here, over the phone or at the box office. We are now accepting submissions to our Shorty Film Contest. The deadline is June 22 at midnight.

We are carrying over our extremely popular feature film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Friday night following the feature film is our Fright Night film Popcorn at 10PM.

We have a special treat for cult film fans Saturday night. Joel Hodgson (creator, writer and star of MST3K) will be hosting MST3K: Chaos at the Colonial. Joel and his students from Riff Camp 2012 are bringing some college level movie riffing to the Colonial Theatre in a Movie Riffing Battle Royale. Four groups will compete on stage riffing some truly horrible short films as the audience will decide who is the victor! Joel will also be screening one of his favorite MST3K episodes (I Accuse My Parents – listed on IMDB as one of the top 55 worst movies ever) and discussing it in a not so scholarly fashion after the live show. Also, warm up act Harrison “Dr. Wizard” Lichtner and Dave “Drop Zone” Piccinetti will do battle in an experimental demonstration in art of “movie clashing.” It’s going to be a packed house so get your tickets now online, over the phone or at the box office!

Come to our theatre tour this Sunday at 12:45 for our monthly tour! We’ll take you on a trip through history at The Colonial Theatre and finish in time for the Classic film at 2PM. Please RSVP by 5PM on Saturday (610-917-1228).

Our classic film theme this month is springtime in Paris and we begin with the beautiful An American in Paris (sponsored by Kimberton Whole Foods). Come see Gene Kelly and a 19-year-old Leslie Caron dance to the music of George and Ira Gershwin, choreographed by Kelly himself.

Our documentary series continues in the month of June, appropriately with the theme Summer Slacking. Sunday at 4:30 we will screen Dogtown and Z-Boys, about the ’70s surf punks of lower Los Angeles who singlehandedly turned skateboarding into an extreme sport.

Thursday at 8PM, Point Entertainment presents Tommy Emmanuel for the first of a two night run at the Colonial. A few select tickets are still available for Thursday, with plenty of greats seats still available for the Friday concert. Tickets can be purchased online, over the phone or at the box office.

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