Community members will be treated to a free community Movie in the Park in Phoenixville on Saturday, Sept. 24 at 7 PM when the Colonial Theatre partners with the Phoenixville Jaycees for a one-time screening of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone under the stars.
Costumes are encouraged! Tickets are not required to attend this event.
The fall outdoor film screening is a traditional show of gratitude for the borough’s participation in its annual Dogwood Festival, which takes place in May. Since 2012, the event has been held in Reeves Park, however the upcoming movie night will take place at Friendship Field/Nattle Park at 501 Franklin Avenue: the site of Phoenixville’s new Recreation Center.
“The Jaycees’ mission is very focused on community collaboration so we are thrilled to have the Colonial involved this year. We are also so excited for the event to be at the new location near our new recreation center as the event has grown over the years,” said Beth Burckley, Phoenixville Jaycees President.
The free event begins at 6 PM with a Diagon Alley marketplace in the Recreation Center and will feature Colonial Theatre popcorn, hot beverages and treats from local businesses including Sweet Brew Phoenixville, and vendors like Reads & Company. The film begins at sunset at 7 PM. Details are available via the Jaycees or Colonial Theatre Facebook accounts and websites.
Fans of Harry Potter films can look forward to additional installments because the free Movie in the Park kicks off a series of screenings later this winter inside the Colonial Theatre. Other upcoming seasonal family friendly titles inside the Colonial include Walt Disney’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Kiki’s Delivery Service, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and The Neverending Story.
