Access Cinema

At Tyneside Cinema our passion is film and ensuring its magic is accessible to all. We have always tried to make this a reality, holding a host of specialised screenings every month. As a result of the necessary health and safety restrictions that we must uphold in relation to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we have had to innovate our Access response in order to continue this essential service. Whilst being as conscious and creative in our response to the current situation as possible, we are now phasing back our Access resources and support wherever possible.

We provide ‘Hard of Hearing’ subtitles on multiple screenings, the details of which can be checked alongside film listings (these screenings are helpfully labelled HOH). We are also returning to our ‘Parent and Baby’ screenings, to enable young families to better access cinema.

We are constantly working to bring all our Access Events and support back to the cinema. Due to the ongoing development of the Coronavirus Pandemic, it would be irresponsible to bring back such events prematurely without the requisite safety measurements in place. Consequently, we will proceed to build back the Access programme in accordance with such developments. Once we are confident that the building meets the new demands required of us, we will reintroduce the full Access programme and further our deep commitment to ensure the upmost inclusivity in celebrating film.

Thank you for your patience and continued support, we hope to see you at the cinema soon.


Here at Tyneside Cinema it’s hugely important to us that all our guests have access to films that bring them joy. With this in mind, our Parent and Baby screenings have been specially curated to ensure parents and guardians can enjoy a comfortable, worry-free cinema experience in our beautiful Art Deco building.

We play the film at a slightly reduced volume and leave the lights a little brighter than in our regular screenings, to allow for more visibility. And for the ultimate enjoyment, a hot drink and a slice of cake are included with your ticket, just for £7!

Our Tyneside Baby Club screenings are exclusively available to those with babies aged up to 1 year old, and any friends and/or family members they wish to bring along.
