Colonial Theatre screens restored 35mm film "Sparrow"

PHOENIXVILLE — The Colonial Theatre will screen a restored 35mm print of “Sparrows,” a 1926 film starring Mary Pickford.

Organist Ben Model will provide live accompaniment, and Pickford historian Christel Schmidt will introduce the film. The screening will take place on April 28, 2013 at 4 p.m.
