November 12, 2013 at 6:30 PM
On the evening of Tuesday, November 12, at 6:30 pm, families from the general community will be invited to attend a free awareness event and learn more information about the need for adoptive homes for older children at the Colonial Theater, 227 Bridge Street, Phoenixville, PA. This event will include a 30 minute presentation of film clips of successful adoption stories for older children as well as a presentation of a short video documentary of the Older Child Matching Initiative to find homes for teenagers.
Then an adoption themed movie (Martian Child) will be played for the audience to enjoy. Martian Child is a 2007 American comedy-drama film about a writer who adopts a strange young boy who believes himself to be from Mars (rated PG). An information table will be set up outside the theater (before and during the performance) for further information for families on how to get involved. The Colonial Theater is a 658-seat facility and is located in the heart of downtown Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. Opened in 1903, the Colonial is only theatre of its kind in Chester County. In its early days, the Colonial was home to live stage shows, vaudeville acts and musicals including appearances by Harry Houdini and Mary Pickford. Real movie buffs know that the Colonial was featured in the 1958 science fiction classic, The Blob, starring Steve McQueen and filmed in and around Phoenixville.
This event is free of charge and is being sponsored by the Delaware Valley Adoption Council. DVAC is a consortium of approximately 40 public and private agencies, individuals, and groups in Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania who promote and advance the cause of adoption in the PA/NJ/DE Tri-State region.
