Spend a Week at the Colonial Jan 20 – Jan 26

Our new feature film this week is the animated Hugo starring Asa Butterfield, Chloë Grace Moretz and Ben Kingsley. It is the tale of an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. Please note that Friday’s opening night screening is at 7PM (rather than the usual 7:30). Tonight is your last chance to see Melancholia at 7:30.

Friday night after our feature we present the cult classic The Big Lebowski. Directed by the Coen brothers, it stars Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Turturro and even Flea (of the Red Hot Chili Peppers)! The theater will be totally Lebowski-ized with white russians being served (limit one per person), custom show posters for sale by local artist Chris Garofalo, a costume contest and The Thrifty Discount DJs providing “Dude-approved” music starting at 9:30PM. Film starts at 10PM and is sponsored by Valor Men’s Grooming Lounge, Salon Fiber and Grace Tattoo.

I will also be in the lobby Friday night. If you want to renew your membership, start a new one, or make a donation, I’ll be available. Stop by and say hello!

Saturday’s kids’ program at 2PM is musician Randy Kaplan. Known for great music for both kids and their parents, Randy performs covers and originals and is sure to be a treat!

Sunday at 2PM we continue the “Man With No Name” classic series with Clint Eastwood in For a Few Dollars More. We follow at 4:30 with the documentary The Interrupters. By the creator of Hoop Dreams, it follows a Chicago-based group called CeaseFire, and their mission to stop violence.

There are just a few spaces left for the 5th Annual Robert Burns Memorial Whisky Tasting on Jan 27th. Join us at this wonderful event whose proceeds support the Classic Film series. Call Mary before they are all gone!!

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