Access Cinema

At Tyneside Cinema our passion is film and ensuring its magic is accessible to all. We have always endeavoured to make this a reality, holding a host of specialised screenings every month.

For more information about how we make our spaces accessible to all, including wheelchair access and assistance animals, click or tap here to view our Accessibility page.


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 biscuits are included with your ticket, for just £6!



We pick films, old and new, that are fun for the entire family to enjoy. All tickets are reduced, and screenings take place every Saturday at 11AM. Adults may only attend if accompanying children.



Our relaxed screening programme is open to all, but is particularly mindful of neurodiverse audiences, with adjustments in place to create an inclusive, relaxed environment for everyone.

After booking a ticket, you’ll receive a Social Story document to outline what to expect at the screening, including information about the film, our building and how the day will run.



Available to everyone aged 60 and over, join us for a specially curated selection of the very best new releases at our monthly Silver Screen event. Settle in for an unmissable morning of film in the comfort of our Electra screen. Tickets are just £6 and include tea or coffee and biscuits, and programme notes for every film. Make Silver Screen your monthly cinema tradition.



We have a headphone system in place in all of our screens for those who are hard of hearing or visually impaired. All regular screenings support boosted volume audio for those who are hard of hearing. An Audio Description track is also available where possible: Please speak to our Box Office team to confirm which of our films have an Audio Description track available. We also regularly schedule subtitled screenings of our film programme, usually one a day, which are open to the public.
