Access Cinema

At Tyneside Cinema our passion is film and ensuring its magic is accessible to all. We are continually striving to make this a reality with a host of specialised screenings available throughout the month.

RELAXED SCREENINGS

Our Relaxed Screenings are for people of all ages with Autism, learning difficulties or other sensory needs, their families and carers. Relaxed Screenings are on the second Sunday of every month at midday (12:00).

We’ve taken care to ensure the environment is safe and comfortable, which means:

  • We keep the lights on slightly and turn the sound down a little
  • It’s fine to move around and make noise during the film
  • There are no adverts or trailers; the movie starts precisely at noon
  • There’s a chill-out space if you need to take a break in a quiet area during the film
  • We try to make sure the film is caption subtitled. These aren’t always available to us, but we’ll flag it on our website, or you can ask us at Box Office

 

Our Relaxed Screenings are open to everyone, although due to sensory sensitivities experienced by some of our guests, we don’t recommend these screenings for children under 2-years-old.

Tickets are £6 per person, and carers go free.

 

DEMENTIA FRIENDLY CINEMA

Dementia Friendly Cinema is our popular programme for people living with Dementia, along with their families and carers. Dementia Friendly screenings are the last Thursday of every month at 13:30.

We’ve taken care to ensure the environment is safe and comfortable, which means:

  • Expect a warm welcome and a cup of tea before enjoying a movie in our beautiful Classic auditorium.
  • We keep the lights on slightly and turn the sound down a little
  • It’s fine to move around and make noise during the film
  • There are no adverts or trailers; the movie starts precisely at 13.30
  • We try to make sure the film is caption subtitled. These aren’t always available to us, but we’ll flag it on our website, or you can ask us at Box Office
  • We use Dementia Friendly signs across the building from Alzheimer’s UK. These signs are in a lower-case text, on a contrasting background and are visible around the building. They also include visual aids in line with Dementia Friendly standards.

 

Our Dementia Friendly Screenings are open to everyone, although due to sensory sensitivities experienced by some of our guests, we don’t recommend these screenings for children under 2-years-old.

Tickets are £6 per person, and carers go free.

 

HARD OF HEARING SCREENINGS

All of our hard-of-hearing screenings have full captioned subtitles. We have multiple subtitled screenings a week across our film programme, to help you see the film you want on the big screen.

 

TYNESIDE CINEMA BABY CLUB

Caring for a new baby is a full-time job, and we understand that it means you have a lot less time for going out and relaxing. At Tyneside Cinema’s Baby Club, parents and carers of young babies can sit back and enjoy the best new film releases. There’s no need to worry about fussy babies bothering other guests, as these screenings are for the parents and carers of young babies (under 12 months), so everyone is in the same boat! Tyneside Cinema Baby Club is on every other Thursday at 11:30 am.

 

We’ve taken care to ensure the environment is safe and comfortable, which means:

  • We keep the lights on slightly and turn the sound down a little
  • It’s fine to move around and make noise during the film
  • There are no adverts or trailers; the movie starts precisely at 11.30
  • We provide a reserved room to stash your buggy in.

 

Tickets are £6 per person, and babies go free.

 

 

TYNESIDE CINEMA KIDS CLUB

Tyneside Kids Club screenings are for you and your kids to enjoy a trip to the cinema together. We screen classics from the 80s, 90s and 00s so that you can introduce your little ones to some of your childhood favourites. We also give every child a lollipop and a raffle ticket for a chance to win two free tickets to attend Kids Club again! Tyneside Kids Club screenings are every other Saturday at 11.30.

We’ve taken care to ensure the environment is safe and comfortable, which means:

  • We keep the lights on slightly and turn the sound down a little
  • It’s fine to move around and make noise during the film
  • There are no adverts or trailers; the movie starts precisely at 11.30

 

Tickets are £6. An adult must accompany children under 12, and those aged 15+ can only attend with accompanying children.
