Life is truly strange, they say. And we believe it. Quiet as the theatre is, it’s painful how much we miss our community. We miss watching movies with each and every one of you. That’s why we’ve created this ‘Colonial Watch Party’ series. Join fellow film fans online as our film hosts welcome and entertain you via a virtual community gathering. This is no where near as magical as seeing a film AT the Colonial, but will at least allow us to spend some (virtual) time together.

About the Film – Royal Wedding (1951)
American sibling song-and-dance team Tom (Fred Astaire) and Ellen Bowen (Jane Powell) are in London in 1947, when all of England is in a tizzy over the impending nuptials of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip. Ellen falls head over heels for the dashing Lord John Brindale (Peter Lawford), and Tom becomes equally smitten with the elegant Anne Ashmond (Sarah Churchill). The film features one of Astaire’s most legendary dance performances, dancing across the ceiling of a hotel room.
