Newtown Theatre Public Open House

Sunday December 5, 2021
11:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The historic Newtown Theatre has been closed since August for a major internal renovation.

On Sunday, December 5 from 11 AM to 3 PM, the public is invited to a free open house to see the results.

Phase I renovations included:

installation of a new hardwood floor

new vintage-style seats on the first floor

plaster repair

a new coat of paint

a fully accessible toilet room on the first floor

a wheelchair lift

a rebuilt front porch

new acoustic tiles in the auditorium

a sprinkler system for fire protection

In the coming years, additional renovation phases will address the basement restrooms and the balcony.  

Since the theatre has largely been untouched for more than 50 years, this renovation was needed so that the facility could meet today’s standards of comfort, convenience, and accessibility. Creating a more functional and aesthetically pleasing environment will ensure the theatre remains a fixture of the Newtown community for decades to come. Renovation work was completed by Newtown’s own Mershon Builders.
