Just saw a concert by Graham Parker and the Rumour on friday night. It was awesome!!! The acoustics of this theater were ok but not as good as say radio city or other big venues. Seating is improved inside the theater and it was crowded.

Ur Welcome….will recent movies be shown at this theater, and how much will it cost for concerts, events, and movies?

Hello all, we are in the process of re-opening the theatre, converting it back to a single screen, and will be presenting concerts, comedy, dance, and film. Thanks for all the kind comments!

Beautiful Theatre.It could not be saved? Thanks Fred and Justin for articles and comments. A pity.

Sad to see it go. What a shame. I wonder if it will become retail or a performing arts building, which newton really needs although SCCC has an auditorium in its building.

Projection has been tuned and tweaked. No current plans for digital projection or sound. ‘Snacks’ contain the best fresh-popped popcorn in the tri-state area, sharing the award with the Lafayette and Cedar Lane :) . Official website: www.bigscreenclassics.com

Since Nelson Page took over, has anything been changed since the last time I went there? I hope they installed digital sound in both screens and improved the projection and snacks.

BTW, I hope they get digital projection in one of those screens just in time for Avatar.

Great photo, Lost Memory. The two movies that played there back in the summer was “Used Cars” in theater #1 and “Empire Strikes Back” in theater #2.

Come May 24, this theater will turn 85. Any celebration plans going on at the theater?

Nice place for an older place. The owner knows what he doing. The booth is not bad and the management is far better than the last. The theater is GREAT!

My friend Dan went to see Max Payne and the management escorted some rowdy 10 year olds out of the showing since it was rated PG-13. Pretty good management, I say. No wonder why this theater is always packed on Friday nights when there’s nothing else to do in downtown Newton.

status should be changed to open since it’s open even though showtimes aren’t listed in the daily record (they only show times for the Sparta theater).

I went to this fine downtown Cinema on Aug 16th 08. WOW what a wonderful experience. The theatre has been repainted and freshened up. When you walk in you buy your ticket right behind the ticket booth is an old time candy counter.The lobby has mirrors to the right and left as you walk in.Above the mirrors is beautful gilding

Both of the cinema’s are roomy and the seating comfortable. There is even a balcony section with an old time lighted sign at the foot of the balcony.

The organ concert by John Barrata was GREAT!(FRI NIGHTS)

The town is just as nice as the theatre with great shops and restaurants! There is even a Policeman that rides a BIKE up and down the sidewalk!

Outside of town in Augusta on Rt 15 is the Chatterbox Drive In Resturant!

So I URGE ALL CINEMA TREASURES MEMBERS to GO TO NEWTON NJ AND enjoy the area for the day and CHECK OUT THE NEWTON THEATRE FOR A GREAT EVENING OF MOVIE MAGIC!

No listings in the Star Ledger. Is it open? And if it is how is business been so far?

and hopefully every other movie showtime site will have it up and running. On New Day Cinemas' site, the theater is still listed…somone should remove that theater as it’s no longer owned by that company. BTW, no showtimes for Indy 4 on the 22nd as both Baby Mama and Narnia are still playing. I remember that this theater always had midnight showings of popular movies just like the big guys. I’m sure this theater showed all three Indy movies in the past.

As was posted 6 posts above, the theatre opened Friday night, 5/16.

Showtimes at Fandango: View link

Moviefone.com should have them next week as well.

moviebuff82 on May 18, 2008 at 4:22 pm

also, no showtimes are posted online…is this theater’s opening delayed? Opening attractions include Baby Mama and Narnia. Next week Indy come out and will play alongside Narnia as Narnia 2 did well at the box office.

someone should change the status to open, as this theater is back running again…btw, any changes since the theater changed ownership, such as prices?

So far, I read that they’re installing new seats and improving the lobby while keeping the theater the way it is. Too bad they’ll show Indy at night the day I’m going to the nearby Hospital for an appointment, as opposed to day-long showtimes in Rockaway.
