Free Summer Kids’ Movies return to Newtown Theatre


The historic Newtown Theatre will host a series of free kids’ movies on three Wednesdays in July.
Each movie will be screened at 10 a.m., with the addition of a special 1 p.m. sensory friendly screening.
The free movies are made possible by presenting sponsor Karen Ann Ulmer, P.C., Attorneys at Law.
No reservations or tickets are required, but summer camps that want to bring children to the 10 a.m. screenings must register by emailing Seating is first-come, first-served and doors open one hour before show time.

The lineup includes: “Shrek” on July 7; “Minions” on July 14; and The Spongebob Movie on July 28.
During the 1 p.m. sensory friendly screenings, the house lights will be turned up slightly and the movie sound turned down slightly. These screenings are a special opportunity for individuals on the autism spectrum and others to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment.
Per Pennsylvania guidelines the theater has no crowd-size restrictions, but unvaccinated patrons are asked to wear masks inside the theater while not eating or drinking.
The Newtown Theatre is located at 120 N. State St. in Newtown Borough. For information, visit
