Become a Member

Why become a member? Because membership matters.

Annual members save up to $4 per film ticket, enjoy other great benefits, and have the satisfaction of knowing their contribution helps to protect this unique, century-old theatre. Membership revenues contribute a significant portion of the funds needed to operate the Colonial Theatre each year so they are vital to our success.

If you love great film and are passionate about this historic venue, consider joining today! Membership also makes a great, all-occasion gift. Scroll down to view Basic and Sustaining Annual Membership levels – or click on the image pictured below to view our membership brochure.

  • Call our office during regular business hours (M-F, 9-6:30PM) at (610) 917-1228 and we’ll help process our membership

All Colonial Theatre members enjoy these Universal Benefits:

  • Free refill on popcorn and soda purchases
  • Quarterly mail newsletter with upcoming programming
  • 50% discount on Wharton Esherick Museum admission
  • Member pre-sale for the Blobfest Run Out (July)
  • Member lounge access before select repertory films
  • Invitations to free member events and special offers
  • Reserved seating at general admission concerts
  • Tax deductibility (amount varies depending on level)
  • Member pricing at other participating Art House Convergence theatres across the country, as part of the Art House Visiting Members program. Click the logo (below) to see a list of participating theatres; excludes theatres within a 30 mile radius of the Colonial.

Please note that certain restrictions apply to benefits. Matching gifts are appreciated but cannot be counted toward a total membership gift. The tax-deductible portion of each membership is noted below.

Current and Renewing members please take note: As a new, first-run theatre, the Colonial can no longer accept free member passes for feature films. Free member passes can only be redeemed for repertory (classic, cult, young audiences) film (see member benefits below).  This change is in response to film industry regulations and prevents us from grandfathering in current members in the middle of their membership year. We appreciate the continued support of you, our members, as we transition to a new business model now that our three screens are operational.

Configure your Agile Member Account

Are you a new or renewing card-carrying Colonial Theatre member? If you have not already done so, you must configure a new personal account in the Agile Ticketing database we’ve just implemented (spring 2017). Here’s a how-to:

1. Call or email Emily Simmons, Development Director, to get your unique Member # if you have not received it via email or mail: emily@thecolonialtheatre.com or (610) 917-1228.

2. Click here.

3. Click the button that says “Are you a member?”

4. Enter your member # in the field and click ‘Submit.’ On the next screen, choose the correct member.

5. Create your new online username and password by entering the requested information when asked.

Logging in allows you to renew your membership before it expires and purchase tickets and passes to all film programming at the discounted Member price. You’ll also be able to redeem any benefitted tickets associated with your membership.

Using ‘Member Passes’

Members receive a bank of ‘free passes’ for repertory films that are now virtual instead of paper.  This is both environmental and cost saving. These virtual passes can be used for admission to Repertory films and expire on the same day as a membership’s expiration. Films eligible for free member pass usage are identified on our website with a green bar that says ‘Member Passes Accepted.’

The Agile ticketing system/website subtracts passes from each member’s ‘bank’ as they are used. These passes can be used as ‘payment’ online, over the phone or at the box office. To use them online, members must be logged in using their Agile member number (scroll up for instructions):

  1. Log in to your Member account using the Agile member number printed on the label on the back of your card. (Contact our office for the number at 610-917-1228.)
  2. Navigate to the show you’d like to see using your free member passes.
  3. Click the ‘Buy Tickets’ Button next to the specific screening date and time you wish to attend.
  4. A pop-up box requesting that you specify ticketing quantity will appear.
  5. Use the drop-down to specify the number of $0.00 ‘Member Passes’ you wish you use for the show.
  6. The ticketing system will remember that you’ve used that number of passes. The next time you log-in, you will see a reduction in the total number available to you. Again, these passes will expire on the date of expiration of each membership.
  7. Proceed to the checkout as usual.
