Spend a Week at the Colonial Jul 10 Jul 16


Blobfest weekend is upon us! The Friday Night Run Out is sold out, but come to Phoenixville anyway, enjoy dinner at one of the town’s many fine eateries! Head back to the Colonial before 9PM to watch the Run Out. At 9:15, the Blob Ball, sponsored by LuLu Boutique and Gifterie, is back at Great American Pub. Tickets are available online here. The theatre is closed tonight in preparation for the weekend.

An extra special thanks to this year’s sponsors: Mainstay Inn, Salena Salon and Horizon Services. Their support helps make Blobfest possible. Please be sure to stop and say hello to them at the street fair Saturday!

Tickets are still available for all double features, but make sure you buy them ahead of time, because the screenings often sell out. Click here to buy tickets. NOTE: Online sales for all Saturday shows end Saturday morning at 9AM. You will only be able to buy your Saturday tickets at the box office on Saturday starting at 11AM. Saturday and Sunday we will screen double features with the classic The Blob (which always screens first), including: Creature from the Black Lagoon 3D (with complimentary keepsake Blobfest 3D glasses!), Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, and The Ghastly Love of Johnny X. For a full schedule of the street fair (Saturday from 11-6) and showtimes all weekend, go to the Blobfest webpage or see below. Beware of The Blob!

Tuesday morning at 10:30AM, bring the kids for Red Yarn. In this energetic musical puppet show, Red Yarn will lead audiences into the Deep Woods, a magical forest where all the animals of American folksongs live together. Families will sing, dance, laugh, and experience the joy of community as they celebrate our shared cultural heritage!
