FILM SCREENING AT COLONIAL THEATRE
From America’s oldest brewery to taprooms changing the landscape of small towns across the commonwealth, GK Visual’s documentary film, Poured in PA, illustrates the importance of this historic—but newly redeveloped—beer industry and its impact on Pennsylvania. Watch this captivating film at the historical Colonial Theatre. Built in 1903, the “Colonial Opera House” became a preeminent venue for movies, traveling shows and live entertainment throughout the 20th century.
BEER TASTING & LUNCH AT ROOT DOWN BREWERY
Following the screening, we’ll walk to Root Down Brewing Company for light lunch fare and a beer tasting. The Brewery is a two-minute walk from the theatre. It’s located inside the old Superior Beverage Co. The craft beer venue is a relaxed environment with a balance of historic features (exposed brick, restored flooring, high ceiling and original elevator of the original Superior Beverage Co.) as well as an urban ambiance (Wu Tang/90’s Hip Hop, graffiti, as well as Kung Fu flicks on the televisions).
