Blobfest

ON SALE DATES

MEMBERS ONLY: MAY 30, 12:30PM     |     GENERAL PUBLIC MAY 31, 12:30PM

It’s that time of year again! Welcome back for the 20th Annual Blobfest, July 12-14, 2019. Join us for a weekend of ‘50s film nostalgia, scifi and kitsch! We are celebrating with our annual Friday Night Run Out, our Saturday Streetfair from 11AM-5PM, and double features all day Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

By popular demand, we are bringing back our VIP weekend passes. These allow you to purchase one ticket to attend all events for the weekend for just one price!

RUN OUT

The Run Out promises to be more oozy fun with EXTRA offerings for you! This year we’ve got reserved seating so you may choose your seats ahead of time. In addition, there will be special Premium Seating on the back aisles, so you can be among the first to Run Out!

BLOB BALL

Following the Run Out Friday night, at 9PM, we will be joined by the Blob Ball, presented by LuLu Boutique & Gifterie. Tickets for the Ball may be purchased separately HERE (tickets are not sold at the theatre or through the theatre’s website).

STREET FAIR

Our Saturday Street Fair is growing like the Blob! This year we will have even more vendors and outside hijinks. In addition to the block of Bridge Street between Main Street and Gay Street, vendors will also be on Main Street between Bridge Street and Church Street.

DOUBLE FEATURES

This year we are bringing you the great Forbidden Planet and Teenagers from Outer Space. There will be 3 screenings Saturday: 12PM, 4PM, and 8PM. Seating for double features is general admission.

SPECIAL GUEST

This year we welcome back the wonderful Marta Kristen, “Judy” from TV’s Lost in Space! Marta will be inside the Colonial in the Garden Suite from 11AM-5PM Saturday, and will give a Q&A Sunday before the double feature.

PARKING

Phoenixville is a small historic town and as such, parking is at a premium; however, there are still lots of choices! We highly recommend that our patrons park in a nearby shopping center and Uber or Lyft into town. In addition to the borough’s usual offerings, patrons may also park in the Holy Ghost Orthodox Church parking lot (corner of Bridge and Starr Streets) for a fee Friday (starting at 5PM) and Saturday (starting at 9:30AM); or in the First Presbyterian Church parking lot (across the street from the church) for an offering.

WHERE TO STAY

Coming from out of town? There is plenty to see and do! Be sure to book your hotel and make restaurant reservations in advance. A searchable listing of hotels may be found on Chester County’s Brandywine Valley Website.
