Located in the heart of Newtown Borough, Bucks County, the historic Newtown Theatre is the center of entertainment in its community. Young and old alike enjoy the convenience of seeing concerts, comedy shows, live theater, movies, and more in a charming, newly renovated 225-seat theatre.

The Newtown Theatre has an extensive history dating back to 1831. The building was originally built as a hall for town gatherings and a non-sectarian church for traveling ministers. By the early 1850s, “Newtown Hall” (as it was then called) was used regularly for performances that ranged from social dances and concerts to theatrical productions and magic lantern shows. Throughout the 1850s, Newtown Hall also hosted anti-slavery meetings, which included sermons by Lucretia Mott and Frederick Douglass.
