About Us

Tyneside Cinema is a thriving arts hub and registered charity which aims to enrich people’s lives by thinking differently about and through film. Striving to provide a platform for marginalised members of our community, we're passionate about all aspects of film and its potential to nourish, connect, reward, celebrate and educate.

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 stakeholders, which enables us to continue championing the very best stories from established and emerging filmmakers alike. You can take a virtual tour of our Heritage displays via our Digital Twin, here:
