Spend a Week at the Colonial Oct 2 Oct 8


We’ve got a week chock full of entertainment for you, so be sure to read through the entire email! Our printed quarterly newsletters should be arriving this week and there is a program change – Labyrinth has replaced The Rocketeer on Nov 14.

Our new feature film this week is Meru. See this powerful documentary of three elite climbers who struggle to find their way through obsession and loss as they attempt to climb Mount Meru, one of the most coveted prizes in the high stakes game of Himalayan big wall climbing. Tonight is your last chance to see The Diary of a Teenage Girl at 7:30.

Following the feature Friday, stay for our Fright Night film, Something Wicked This Way Comes. Jason Robards, Jonathan Pryce, and Diane Ladd star in this Ray Bradbury tale of a diabolical circus and its demonic proprietor who prey on the townsfolk. Bring the teens for this rare PG rated fright night!

This Saturday is the Phoenixville Food Festival from 12PM – 6PM. Join us for an hour of food-related short films for all ages. The shorts will play on a continuous loop from 12:30 until 6PM, so stop in anytime, or multiple times! See the line-up here. Tickets are FREE thanks to the Phoenixville Food Festival! For information on road closures and parking, please go to the Phoenixville Food Festival website!

We are doing a 3-week tribute to Christopher Lee this month for our Classic series. This week we begin with The Gorgon, also starring Vincent Price. In early-twentieth-century middle-Europe, villagers are literally becoming petrified. Although the authorities try to hush the matter up, it is apparent that at the full moon, Megaera, a Gorgon, leaves her castle lair and anyone looking on her face is turned to stone. When this fate befalls a visitor, experts from the University of Leipzig arrive to try and get to the bottom of it all.

Monday, in lieu of our feature film, we will be screening Sharing the Rough, presented by Calhoun Jewelers. Producer, Producer Couple, Mogul, Angel and Director’s Circle members of the Colonial are invited to this special, private screening and instructed to RSVP by October 3rd to or call (610) 917-1228.

Tuesday at 7PM we present the first of our TEDxPhoenixville Salons this year. This salon’s theme: Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Immortality. If you plan to attend, be sure to read the description of the event below.

There will be a special screening Wednesday night at 7:30 of The Reflektor Tapes. A blend of interviews, concert footage, and personal moments chronicle the making of the band Arcade Fire’s album, Reflektor.

Thursday night at 8PM Point Entertainment presents Brett Dennen. It’s going to be a packed house for this soulful singer-songwriter, but there are still tickets left. Be sure to get them online here soon!

Join us the first and third Sundays of each month at 12:30 for an exclusive tour of the theatre and a visit to 225 Bridge St. Please RSVP by 5PM Thursday by calling 610-917-1228, giving us the names of all attending.
