Ticket sales vary by event type. Please follow the instructions for your type of event.

If the Newtown Theatre sells tickets at the box office for any event, those tickets will not be available until the day of the event. Typically the doors open 30-60 minutes before an event.

Ticket Policy

For tickets sold by the Newtown Theatre, all sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges—no exceptions. Inclement weather is not a cause for refund unless a performance is actually cancelled.

Unless an event is offered with free admission, all persons entering the Newtown Theatre, including babes in arms, must have a ticket.

Feature and Classic Films

Tickets for most feature and classic films are available only at the box office 30 minutes prior to start times. Unless otherwise noted, prices for feature and classic films are:

  • $10 for adults

  • $8 for students and seniors 60 and over

  • $7 for children 12 and under

  • $5 for theatre members

Seating at feature and classic films is first come, first served.

Ticket prices vary by performance. Tickets are offered online for all Newtown Live! concerts, and any remaining tickets may be sold at the box office prior to the concert. If concerts sell out online before the concert, tickets will not be sold at the box office.

All concert tickets purchased online will be checked at the door. Please bring a hard or mobile copy of your ticket.

Seating at concerts is first come, first served.
