We are bringing a special feature presentation to the Colonial the week of Jun 6: the recorded theatrical production of Driving Miss Daisy, starring Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones. Tickets are on sale now! (We regret that movie passes and Senior Circle discounts cannot be used for these screenings.)

Our new feature film this week is Only Lovers Left Alive. Jim Jarmusch directs this film about a depressed musician who is reunited with his lover, though their romance – which has already endured several centuries – is disrupted by the arrival of her uncontrollable younger sister. Tonight is your last chance to see The Wedding Video at 7:30.

The final Classic film featuring Meryl Streep this month is Out of Africa. In 1913 colonial Kenya, a Danish baroness/plantation owner (Streep) has a passionate love affair with a free-spirited big-game hunter (Robert Redford).

Tickets for Blobfest 2014 will go on sale Friday, May 30 at 10:00AM! The theme this year is “Clash of the Kaiju” (kaiju means “monster” in Japanese). This means our double features this year will include The Blob with Mothra, King Kong vs. Godzilla and The Giant Spider. The fastest, easiest way to get tickets is online. Remember Blob fans: tickets for the Friday Night Run Out sell out in minutes, so if you’re not available to buy tickets May 30 at 10AM, find a friend who is if you want to get in!

The Shorty Amateur Trailer Contest has begun – and the deadline is 9:00AM on MONDAY, JUNE 23, 2014. Note that this year we are accepting trailers only (instead of short films), and their limit is 3 minutes (vs. 5 minutes in prior years). For more information on the contest, click here.

We will be closed Monday for Memorial Day. Enjoy the weekend everyone!

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