As you come in to town this weekend, you will notice that the gated lock behind Molly Maguire’s is now closed. Remember that there is still FREE parking after 5PM in the Borough Hall parking lot and behind Customers Bank. Thanks!

We’re getting pretty excited about Blobfest 2014 here at the offices of the Colonial Theatre! Run Out tickets sold out in less than 15 minutes last Friday and the event continues to grow every year. With that growth is additional cost. As a result, we are reaching out to you, our loyal supporters for some help. Starting this year, we have set up a program called the Blobfest Brigade. If you wish, you may make a donation from $10 up to $500. You may donate online here, where you will see various Blobfest donation levels. Brochure applications are also in the theatre lobby and you may also donate over the phone. We appreciate your support!

Our new feature film this week is Driving Miss Daisy. Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones star as a Jewish woman and her African-American chauffeur in the American South who have a relationship that grows and improves over the years. Tickets are on sale now! Please note that prices for this special event are $20-22. (We regret that movie passes and Senior Circle discounts cannot be used for these screenings.) Tonight is your last chance to see Fading Gigolo at 7:30.

Following the feature Friday night, join us for our Fright Night film, Christine. Keith Gordon plays a nerdish boy who buys a strange car with an evil mind of its own and his nature starts to change to reflect it.

Saturday at 12PM, the Colonial is host to TEDxYouth @BridgeStreet, an event organized by youth for youth. The event includes live speakers, TEDTalks, and an interactive intermission! Ticket are $6 in advance and you may buy them online or for $7 at the door. Our next TedXPhoenixville Salon is next Tuesday at 6:30.

Come on down this Sunday at 12:30 for an exclusive tour of the theatre and a visit to preview 225 Bridge St. Please RSVP by 5PM Saturday by calling 610-917-1228, giving us the names of all attending.

Our Classic film this week is Bullitt, starring Steve McQueen. McQueen plays a San Francisco cop becomes determined to find the underworld kingpin that killed the witness in his protection.

There are still tickets available for An Evening with Roger McGuinn, Thursday, Jun 12 at 8PM. You may purchase tickets online here.

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