Blobfest is an annual 1950s / horror street festival, which takes place in Phoenixville, PA to honor the original “Blob” movie. Why? Well, the running out of the theater scene was shot at the historic Colonial Theater right on Bridge Street! It’s a really cool event. The best part as always is watching “The Blob” in the Colonial. Advice: Attend the double showing where “The Blob” gets paired up with another 1950s B-list horror flick. My favorite year was when the second movie was “The Invasion of the Saucer Men”. I’ve written about Blobfest for Pennsylvania Magazine.
