Virtual Screenings

We are carefully curating virtual experiences to share with you that resonate with our mission of nurturing community.  Your screening purchase will support the Colonial, and help us remain a vibrant center for film and the live arts once we re-open.

Every new release we offer will be available through the individual distributor’s websites and streaming services. You’ll be taken to their websites to purchase and watch the film, but a portion of your ticket will help support The Colonial Theatre.
