I can’t figure out how to get in touch with Matt Stopera from NYC who posted the photos, but he deserves a round of applause for this striking collection.

  1. PRESS RELEASE
    Newton Theatre to re-open as Performing Arts Center

    Will present Concerts, Comedy, Theatre, Dance and Film.

    Newton NJ, April 4, 2011:
    Owners Jonathan Peirce and Paul Larena have contracted to purchase The Newton Theatre at 234 Spring Street.
    Their goal is to return the theatre to its original splendor and serve as Sussex County’s largest full-time Performing Arts Center presenting Concerts, Comedy, Theatre, Dance and Film.
    “Newton is right on the edge of a renaissance similar to Morristown was a few short years ago, and we believe the Theatre can be an important component”, said Peirce, who resides in Sparta.
    They have extensive experience in theatre restoration, most recently at the Mayo Center for the Performing Arts in Morristown. They also own 5 Point Event Production Services, which provides technical and production support to many of the world’s top artists and corporations.
    Larena, of East Hanover adds, “We are very excited to be coming to Newton and bringing world-class talent to the community.”
    Opening is scheduled for mid July 2011. Applications for Box Office, Stagehands, Maintenance and Ushers are available on the theatre’s website.
