Two Newtown classics team up for special event


It’s an offer you can’t refuse…again.

The historic Newtown Theatre and Rocco’s at The Brick steak house are teaming up again for a special event that includes dinner and a screening of “The Godfather II” on Wednesday, Sept. 13. Last year’s event, which sold out in 10 hours, included a screening of “The Godfather.”

The night starts at Rocco’s at 5 p.m. when guests can enjoy appetizers and a selection of fine red and white wines. This will be followed by a dinner of Caesar salad, either an 8-ounce filet mignon or two fresh Maine lobster tails, baked potato and green beans, and cheesecake for dessert.

After dinner, guests will walk a block and a half to the historic theater for a private screening, which will start at 7 p.m.

This event is capped at 80 people. For information and tickets, visit
