Dear Business Owner,
The Newtown Theatre located in the center of Historic Newtown is the heart of our community, and has been for over 181 years. As a non-profit corporation making ends meet is hard some times, so recently we have started to offer advertising opportunities on screen before each movie. We have carefully designed a program of advertising that incorporates the history of our theatre, and upcoming events, with an intermix 2 groups of twelve 15 second ads, along our plea that our customers support those people who support the theatre. This gives each advertiser 30 seconds of screen time before each movie. As you know being from the community the loyalty of the patrons of the Newtown Theatre is unparalleled and runs very deep. So enough of the hard sell. If you would be interested the theatre offers the following, we do this presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint, the pre show runs a minimum of once before each show, depending on the time available between movies some times more. I would be happy to discuss your needs with you further, I realize your time is valuable and do thank you for taking the time to read this.

Please scroll down for the rates.

Please do not hesitate to give me a call my Cell phone number is (215) 805-0762

General Manager
