Colonial Theatre Hosting Sneak Preview of The Best and the Brightest Tommorow

Be the first to see the new Neil Patrick Harris comedy before its summer release! There will be a Q&A with cast members and filmmakers after the movie.

A cast to die for, an unpredictable plot full of twists, and a nothing-held-back sense of silly, yet intelligent sense of humor — these are just some of the things that make The Best and the Brightest live up to its name. Josh Shelov directs one of the edgiest comedies ever to touch on the rearing of children, featuring Neil Patrick Harris and Bonnie Somerville as a newly-transplanted New York yuppie couple trying in vain to enroll their little girl into an absurdly elitist private kindergarten. After they hire eccentric placement consultant Amy Sedaris(!), a most outlandish “Three’s Company”-meets-the-Farrelly Brothers chain of events tumbles into place. To say any more would be to ruin the film’s many surprises, but get stoked for savage swipes at class struggle, as well as some of the most hilarious filthy “poetry” on record. British sensation Peter Serafinowicz, John Hodgman and an outrageously sleazy Christopher McDonald also star in the fiercest farce so far this year!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors. On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow. --- Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up. "The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything." Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store. --- Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914.

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back , Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret. The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture: --- Opening in September 2008, The Fenix will offer a unique selection of over 15 specialty martinis as well as classic cocktails, fine wines and spirits. An eye-catching menu of delicious food will also be available along with great music and live DJ’s. The Fenix will create an exciting and varied cocktail party atmosphere every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4pm. Our guests will enjoy the comfortable lounge for food or a casual after work drink. Later on, they can listen or dance to the best music and DJ’s around or just gather at

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
