The Jerk

  • The Newtown Theatre 120 North State Street Newtown, PA, 18940 (map)

He’s the only jerk we’ve got.

The Jerk will return to the big screen for one night only on Friday, September 27 at 7:30 PM.

Navin (Steve Martin) believes he was born a poor black child in Mississippi. He is, however, actually white. Upon figuring this out, he heads north to St. Louis to find himself. After landing a job at a gas station, Navin is excited to discover his name printed in the new phone book. This ratification of his existence leads him from one misadventure to another: he invents gadgets, dodges bullets, joins the carnival and seeks love in the arms of beautiful Marie (Bernadette Peters).
