The Screening Room is Newburyport’s gem of a cinema. Operating out of a tiny storefront at 82 State Street in Newburyport, this 99-seat theater has been running reels nightly since ’82 and the audience keeps coming. It is a community landmark and tradition, one of the only places on the North Shore that shows independent and foreign films.
The Screening Room fills an important niche in the Newburyport arts scene. Some customers have no memory of it not being here. There are 30-somethings who remember puppet shows from their childhood who now come in the evening. Senior citizens who were once younger and wished they had time to come, now are able to come regularly.
It’s a one-of-a-kind place you don’t want to miss!
