Ticket & Booking Information

At Tyneside Cinema, we are continually striving to make film accessible to all. We have a range of offers and discounts to make sure everyone has a chance to experience the magic of cinema.

Booking Process


Tickets for all of our screenings at Tyneside Cinema can be booked in person at our Box Office located in the ground floor foyer, from our website, or over the phone.

If you book tickets via the website, you will be charged a £1.40 booking fee per transaction, unless you are a Friend member or Young Tyneside member, in which case you can book at no additional cost!

When you purchase your ticket(s) remotely, either via the website or over the phone, you will be sent two emails: One contains a transaction confirmation, and the other contains your E-ticket(s), sent as a PDF attachment. When attending your screening(s) you will need to present your E-ticket PDF to enter the screen: You can do this by showing the PDF on a smart device, or you can print it off. You can also visit our Box Office in advance of the screening and ask for your tickets to be printed, although we would encourage you to not print tickets off unless necessary.
