Please use this form to submit payment for your birthday party, PTO event or other rental at the Newtown Theatre. This form may not be used unless you have been instructed to use it by our Rental Coordinator.
BIRTHDAY PARTY FAQ
There are no restrictions on the content of the movie, but please be mindful of timing constraints. Because all birthday parties are two and a half hours, try to keep the running time at about an hour and a half. That will give you time after the movie to enjoy food or cake and load out of the theatre on time.
You may bring your film on DVD or Blu-Ray. Please make sure that your disc is not scratched or damaged, as we can’t be held responsible for a disc that doesn’t play correctly.
SET-UP AND DECORATING
For a 10 AM party, please load in at 9:45 and be cleared out of the theatre by 12:30. For a 1 PM party, please load in at 12:45 and be cleared out by 3:30 PM. For a 4 PM party, please load in at 3:45 and out by 6:30 PM. For a 10 PM party, please load in at 9:45 and be cleared out by 12:30 AM.
You’re welcome to decorate in the 15 minutes prior to your party’s starting time.
Candles and latex balloons are allowed and you're welcome to bring your own tablecloths. Please refrain from bringing glitter, confetti, or helium (floating) balloons of any kind.
We can comfortably seat 30 people for cake, lunch, etc. We have two 8-foot folding tables and can provide one additional table for presents.
We can accommodate a maximum of 30 children for kids’ birthday parties. There are no limitations on how many parents can attend the party with their children. There are no limitations on how many guests are allowed for an adult birthday party.
For the safety of all our guests, staff, and facility, inappropriate and/or disruptive behavior at birthday parties will not be tolerated. All children attending a birthday party must be supervised at all times, and adults are asked to redirect inappropriate play or behavior, such as running around the theatre. We recommend a 1-to-8 ratio of adults to children to assist with this.
FOOD AND BEVERAGES
Your rental package includes a free small popcorn and water for each guest (up to 30 kids for a child’s party). We also provide paper plates, utensils, and napkins. You’re welcome to bring your own food and/or cake.
Some people have pizza delivered to the theatre (120 N. State Street). We recommend that you have the pizza arrive right after the movie ends, so be sure to check the running time of your film. Concessions will be available for purchase.
Adult birthday parties are BYOB.
If you need to cancel a birthday party for any reason, please let us know right away. If you cancel more than two weeks (14 days) before the party, we’ll refund half the cost of the party ($150). If you cancel sooner than two weeks prior to the party, we will not refund your rental fee.
If your party cannot be held due to inclement weather (e.g., a blizzard or hurricane), we’ll work with you to reschedule your party as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that our rental calendar fills up quickly, so we can’t guarantee that we can reschedule your party close to the original date.
