I am trying to find out what was playing at the Newton Theater in Newton, NJ on April 12, 1963. Does anyone have any idea how I can find out or where to look for such info? EFLATT
The newspaper entertainment section at the library,if they have microfilm records.
Vic1964 above is right, if the local public library has the Newton (or whichever pertinent) newspaper on microfilm, it should be a piece of cake to locate the proper day and find out what movie was playing. I do this kind of research all the time, reconstructing programming schedules for movie theatres; you can often learn a great deal of interesting things about local movie theatres, in addition to what films were playing. A website called NewspaperArchive.com has a lot (like, hundreds) of newspapers accessible, if you run out of other options (and if they have the newspaper for Newton, NJ).
Only one NJ paper on newspaperarchive, the Hopewell Herald, has articles up to 1954. All the other Jersey papers are from around the beginning of the 20th century.
