  • Take a peek behind the scenes of Tyneside Cinema (guided tours only)

Free guided tours of the building take place every Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday at 11:00. These are led by one of our expert tour guides. Please note, these may change depending on events and the availability of our tours guides, so please check for details.

Alternatively, wander round and explore the Cinema at your own leisurely pace. Explore the building between 10:00 and 22:00 everyday.
