About Us

Tyneside Cinema is a thriving social hub and registered charity which aims to enrich people’s lives by thinking differently about and through film. The Tyneside Cinema team are passionate about all aspects of film and its potential to nourish, connect, reward, celebrate, educate, and speak for the most marginalised – to speak for us all.

Dedicated to screening the best new releases from the UK and beyond, we’re proud to be the home of great film in the North East and the region’s leading independent cinema. Stories are fundamental to how we understand the world around us, which is why we’re committed to offering the most varied film programme in the North East and providing diverse ways for our communities to learn, share, and explore. Whether you’re meeting friends in one of our food and drink venues, organising an event with us, or popping in to see a film, we’re delighted to play a role in your story.

As we approach 100 years in our historic Art Deco home in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, we’re hugely grateful for the vital support that we receive from our valued guests, members, and stake-holders, which enables us to continue championing the very best stories from established and emerging filmmakers alike.

Change and Going Forward

Like many businesses across the world, we’ve been working extremely hard over the last few months to equip our beautiful building with everything needed to re-open safely and protect you when you return. This includes the closing down of our physical box office, the implementation of a one way system, a reduction in concession points to facilitate social distancing, and the mandatory wearing of face masks in some areas of the building (unless exempt).

We’re extremely touched by the ongoing support that we’ve received from local residents and the wider film-loving community during this challenging time, and immensely grateful for the generous donations that we continue to receive, without which we wouldn’t be where we are today. Thanks to your kindness and support, we’re able to welcome you back to the cinema and continue serving the North East with fantastic films, important community projects, and delicious food and drink.

Thank you for your support
