The non-profit Colonial Theatre is a great venue in Phoenixville! It offers both live concerts and movies, including silent movies accompanied by the only publicly performing theatre pipe organ in Chester County. Movies are both first run and classic films. The costs are not high, and I became a member to get even more perks. Strongly sugegst a visit to the Colonial.

Quaint old time theater with street front marquis and old fashioned feel. Several theaters all small in size. Tends to play older movies and/ or non big theater named shows. Lots of unique showings to include the famous Blob. Offer live concerts at times as well. Snack bar with beer/wine available. Offers event space to include roof top views. Worth a visit.

All the seats have been updated and are extremely comfortable. The tickets are reasonable and almost half what it will cost you to see the same film at this one theatre not 21/24 ones! The recreation of the " Blob" a film made in Phoenixville, where people are being chased out of the theatre by a giant tomato is going to make you laugh. My husband and I did it once and we had a great time.

The Colonial Theater is a well-restored and comfortable venue to catch a concert (as we did), movie, or stage show. Walking in transports you back in time as it looks like it hasn't aged a day since the Blob was filmed here 60 years ago. Make sure you go up to the balcony to see the 'Blob Wall'. We enjoyed an excellent show by Mat Kearney as part of his acoustic City of Black and White Revisited tour and the acoustics were fantastic. We sat in the back row of the balcony and had a clear view of the entire stage. The concession areas and restrooms were well sized to care for a large crowd. I look forward to returning to catch another event in the near future.
