Overview

Every July, cult film fans flock to the historic Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville for Blobfest, a three-day horror extravaganza.

Many scenes from the 1958 horror/science-fiction movie The Blob were filmed at the Colonial Theatre and in Phoenixville, and every year locals celebrate their place in movie history with a weekend-long street party.

Festivities include three film screenings of The Blob (as well as other horror/science fiction films including Queen of Blood and This Island Earth), a costume contest, live reenactments from the movie, a street fair, and themed competitions.
