Spend a Week at the Colonial May 4 – May 10

Next Saturday, May 19 at 7PM, the Theatre Organ Society of the Delaware Valley presents The General, with live accompaniment by Jim Riggs, nationally renowned theatre organist! We are so lucky to have this grand theatre pipe organ right here in our community at the Colonial! Final voicing is going on this week – this should be a real treat! Fans of The Artist will love this silent film starring the wonderful Buster Keaton, and Marion Mack as Annabelle Lee, his love interest. Tickets are $5.00-$13.50 and are available online, at the box office and over the phone.

Our new feature film this week is Coriolanus . It stars Ralph Fiennes in the lead role as a great soldier who allies with his enemy (played by Gerard Butler) to get revenge on his city. Tonight is your last chance to see We Need to Talk About Kevin at 7:30.

Our classic film theme for May is teachers. We begin this week with Goodbye Mr. Chips. Our documentary at 4:30 on Sunday is Nostalgia for the Light, which juxtaposes astronomers searching the sky with citizens looking for the remains of their loved ones in the Chilean desert.

Thursday, May 10 Point Entertainment presents An Evening with Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra. Tickets are still available and may be purchased online, over the phone or at the box office.

A good time was had by all last Thursday at our annual Volunteer Appreciation Party! We want to thank all the local businesses who donated food and prizes to the party: Taste, Artisans Gallery and Cafe, Kimberton Whole Foods, Soltane Breads and Spreads, Molly Maguire’s, Franco Ristorante, Pepperoncini Sotto, The Wooden Spoon Bakery and Cafe, Black Walnut Winery, and Columbia Bar and Grille. Thanks also to our wonderful special events committee: Evie, Dick, Sandy and Priscilla.

Our fans are chomping at the bit about this, so… Blobfest 2012 is happening Jul 13 -15. Tickets go on sale Jun 1. Details will be posted on the website soon! Facebookers, please like our Blobfest page on FB to keep up with everything Blob!

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