The Colonial Theatre has been a staple in Pheonixville since 1903. Kristen speaks with Chuck Francisco, a longtime Blobfest committee member, film curator and host at the Colonial Theatre about next weekend’s 21st Annual Blobfest celebration.
Blobfest 2020: The Home Edition is happening Friday, July 10th, and Saturday, July 11th, virtually this year because of the Coronavirus pandemic. The 1958 Steve McQueen film ‘The Blob’ was filmed locally, and the theater scene in the movie (where The Blob comes out of the projector screen to attack the audience) was actually filmed at the Colonial Theatre. This classic theater also hosts independent films and a number of other special programming events throughout the year, and is run by a the Association for the Colonial Theater (ACT) a non profit 501c3 organization. Blobfest is the theater’s biggest event and fundraiser of the year. Your tickets to Blobfest 2020: The Home Edition allow you to enjoy the film The Blob, a costume contest, the crowning of Miss Blobfest 2020, double features with other classic horror films and lots more.
