Our new feature film this week is The Great Beauty. Winner of this year’s Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTA, the film is about journalist Jep Gambardella, who finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life. Tonight is your last chance to see Gloria at 7:30.

Our Young Audiences film this Saturday at 2PM is our St. Patrick’s Day favorite, Darby O’Gill and the Little People. A wily old codger matches wits with the king of the leprechauns and helps play matchmaker for his daughter and the strapping lad who has replaced him as caretaker.

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.

The third of our Classic film series’ March “madness” theme is One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. This powerful film resulted in Jack Nicholson winning his first Academy Award, and it swept the remaining four major Oscar categories: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay.

Join us Sunday, Mar 30 at 2PM for our Spring Pipe Organ Concert, presented by The Theatre Organ Society of the Delaware Valley. The program will consist of seasonal music and organ accompaniment to two silent shorts: One A.M. and The Pawnshop. Following the concert, please join us at 5PM in celebrating the life of director/writer/actor Harold Ramis with our Harold Ramis Marathon (Animal House, Caddyshack, Stripes), sponsored by Snyder Daly & Clemente, PC.

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