A picture-perfect party

Birthday parties at the historic Newtown Theatre are a blast for kids and stress-free for parents!

When you rent the theatre, you get the entire facility to yourself for two and a half hours. We’ll help you plan a birthday party that uses our space for the maximum fun for everyone. You won’t need to worry about anything besides capturing the smiles on your guests’ faces.

When you step into the auditorium, you’ll see the birthday boy or girl’s name on the big screen. After all, every child deserves to see their name up in lights. We’ll have tables and chairs set up in the auditorium if you need them and provide any assistance you need while your guests arrive.

Then, it’s time to start your movie!

My son had his sixth birthday at the Newtown Theatre, and he and his friends had a great time. It is wonderful to be able to bring your favorite movie on your own DVD and see it projected on the big screen. The staff was friendly and helpful, and everything was perfect.

Lights, Camera, Party!

If it plays on your DVD or BluRay device at home, you can watch it at the Newtown Theatre.

Your child’s favorite movie will get the full theater treatment: crystal clear surround-sound and amazing picture quality.

Many parents show their child’s favorite movie. You can also show a home video or a beloved episode of your child’s favorite TV show.

Of course, it’s not a movie screening without popcorn. When you host your party at the Newtown Theatre, all of your guests receive one small popcorn for free. The concession stand will be open so you can purchase candy and drinks.

When the movie ends, your guests can enjoy pizza, cake, and any treats from home that you’d like to provide. We can suggest local pizzerias if you want to order delivery.

Thanks for making a birthday so easy! Your recommendation for pizza delivery was helpful, and the kids had a great time. The parents also enjoyed the location because they got to enjoy all that Newtown has to offer while their children were at the party. I’m glad we booked it!

Everyone I worked with during the planning of my daughter’s party was wonderful! The process was so easy, as was the event. We will be returning for movies, and I have made sure to let everyone know how great the party was!
