For the 24th consecutive year, the Blob returns to devour the iconic Colonial Theatre with Blobfest 2023! The annual signature event is a festival commemorating the Colonial’s place in cinematic history as a filming location for the 1958 classic film – and all things sci-fi horror. Blobfest 2023 continues the tradition July 14-16, 2023 with Monster-themed in-person double features, a street festival, contests, and beloved re-enactment of the film’s ‘Run Out’ scene with a live stage show written by Colonial Theatre staff and performers!
