Documentary: My Kid Is Not Crazy

More than 30 years ago, Dr. Susan Swedo discovered that Strep was linked to symptoms normally chalked up to psychiatric illness. Swedo has since been fighting to cure the condition she named: Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcal Infections (PANDAS). Influential neurologists and others publicly ridicule Swedo and her PANDAS theory, creating controversy over diagnoses and treatment. The result: the entire pediatric-care industry is confused and doesn't know what to do.

My Kid Is Not Crazy: A Search for Hope in the Face of Misdiagnosis tracks the journey of six children and their families as they become tangled in the nightmare of a medical system heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical industry.

Tickets for this documentary are available at the door for $10 per person. Stick around after the screening for a Q&A. All proceeds will benefit the PANDAS Network.

    Comedian Gilbert Gottfried

    Comedian Gilbert Gottfried

    The one and only Gilbert Gottfried (with special guest Bill Chiang) will perform two shows at the Newtown Theatre on Saturday, October 7. Doors open an hour before each show.

    At the young age of 15, Gilbert Gottfried began doing stand-up at open mike nights in New York City, after a few short years, became known around town as “the comedian’s comedian.” After spending several years mastering the art of stand-up comedy, producers of the legendary NBC late night comedy show Saturday Night Live became aware of Gottfried and, in 1980, hired him as a cast member. It wasn’t until a few years later when his true notoriety would begin when MTV hired him for a series of improvised and hilarious promos for the newly formed channel. This led to several television appearances on “The Cosby Show” and “Late Night with David Letterman.”

    Gottfried’s work in television soon led to roles in film. Most notable was his improvised scene as business manager Sidney Bernstein in the hit sequel “Beverly Hills Cop II,” for which the New York Daily News said, “Gilbert Gottfried steals the picture with a single scene.” Aside from his glowing reputation in comedy clubs, Gottfried began to gain a reputation as the king of quirky roles in both movies and television. He appeared in such movies as “Problem Child,” “Problem Child II,” “Look Who’s Talking II” and “The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.” He was also the host of the very popular late night movie series “USA Up All Night.”

    After his stellar performance as the wise cracking parrot, IAGO, in the Disney classic “Aladdin,” Gottfried became one of the most recognizable voiceover talents, lending his voice to several commercials, cartoons and movies, including the frustrated duck in the AFLAC Insurance commercials. Gottfried also is the voice of DIGIT in the long running PBS Series “Cyberchase.” His signature voice can also be heard on the Comedy Central series, “The Annoying Orange, the voice of the horse on “Family Guy,” Mr. Mxyzptlk in the new “Lego Batman 3 – Beyond Gotham” video game, and Abraham Lincoln in A Million Ways to Die in the West.

    Gottfried has made numerous memorable appearances on Comedy Central Roasts and the Comedy Central series, “The Burn with Jeff Ross.” Gilbert has been a guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Late Show with Seth Meyers”, “@Midnight with Chris Hardwick” and numerous appearances on “The Howard Stern Show.” He also has had a recurring role on “Law and Order” SVU as TARU tech Leo Gerber.

    As a famed comics comic, Gottfried puts aside political correctness for his live performance and fires an onslaught of jokes that know no boundaries.

    Silent Film: Phantom of the Opera

    7:00pm 7:00pm

    Silent Film: Phantom of the Opera

    Join us for a special screening of the 1925 silent horror film, Phantom of the Opera, featuring a live piano score by a professional film accompanist.

    Tickets will be available at the door for $10. Doors open at 6:30 PM and the show starts at 7:00 PM on Sunday, October 22.

    Prior to the mid-1920s, all movies were silent and dialogue was transmitted through mute gesture, mime and title cards, which contained a written indication of the plot or key dialogue. For added effect, silent films were commonly accompanied by musicians – often pianists – who provided a live score in the movie house. The Newtown Theatre, which showed its first film in 1906, was one of these places.

    This movie is part of the theatre’s 2017 Silent Film Series, which is supported by Newtown attorney Alice Hart Hughes, Esq.

Unfortunately for Emmet, he is hopelessly—and hilariously—unprepared for such a task, but he'll give it his all nonetheless.

    Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek (Mike Myers) whose precious solitude is suddenly shattered by an invasion of annoying fairy tale characters.

Determined to save their home—not to mention his—Shrek cuts a deal with Farquaad and sets out to rescue Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) to be Farquaad's bride. Rescuing the Princess may be small compared to her deep, dark secret.
