As cinemas reopen across the U.S., Some Like It Hot makes a welcome return to the big screen next Friday, April 23rd. The historic Newtown Theatre in Bucks County, Pennsylvania is America’s oldest continuously operational movie theatre. It first opened as a town hall in 1831, and had established itself as a local entertainment hotspot long before showing its first movie in 1906.
This is a screening with a difference, part of an aptly-themed Speakeasy Movie Series. Patrons will enter through the back door with a secret code, just like in Prohibition days. The $40 entrance fee includes two alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks, and a small popcorn. Patrons must be over 21 and current restrictions will be observed – more details here.
