Join us tonight at 6:30 for Goodnight Ladies. Goodnight Ladies is a documentary short film (shot on super 16 mm film with animation) that memorializes one of the world’s most famous Masters of Fox Hounds, Nancy Penn Smith Hannum, and the legacy she left behind. This special, one-night engagement will feature a talk-back after the film with filmmaker Christianna Hannum Miller. Tickets are $10/person; $8/member and may be purchased online here.

We are carrying over our feature film, King Georges. Watch this engaging documentary about Philadelphia restaurateur Georges Perrier and the closing of his iconic restaurant, Le Bec-Fin. Please note that there are not screenings on Saturday or Sunday.

Following our feature Friday, stay for our 9:45 screening of Stop Making Sense, the mid-80s concert film directed by Jonathan Demme, about New Wave band, the Talking Heads. Thanks to our friends at Electric Avenue Music for their sponsorship!

Saturday morning at 10AM, TOSDV presents Theatre Organ 101 and Open Console. Come out for an introduction to the theatre pipe organ! Members will play our Wurlitzer both before and after the Theatre Organ 101 presentation.

Saturday evening at 7PM we welcome back One Night Only Comedy and Variety Festival! The Festival features a traveling crew of stand-up comics, variety artists, magicians, and circus freaks who have been featured on late night talk shows and more. For adults and kids aged 13+.

Our classic films are back this Sunday at 2PM with Stairway to Heaven. No, not that Stairway to Heaven…this is a film starring David Niven and Kim Hunter as star-crossed lovers. Directed by Michael Powell (The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, Black Narcissus).

Sunday night at 7:30 marks the return of virtuoso ukelele artist Jake Shimabukuro. The native Hawaiian performs traditional and modern classics including Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, Schubert’s Ave Maria and Cohen’s Hallelujah.

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 and giving us the names of all attending.
