Since 1938 our Coffee Rooms venue has been a much-loved meeting point for all manner of Newcastle folk and visitors to the city. When COVID hit last year, we were forced to close our cinema and all our hospitality spaces. Later this month, we plan to phase the re-opening of our building starting with reduced screenings, the Bar Café and the re-named pavement café, Vicolo by Tyneside Cinema.

The Coffee Rooms will not be reopened initially, partly because of difficulties in keeping a safe distance between visitors, and partly to give us time to make some much needed improvements to the venue. We will be replacing the worn-out carpets with a new wooden floor, redecorating the walls, improving the furnishings and installing a drop-down screen and sound equipment so we can host special screenings in the evenings as part of our new programme of events. Once we have everything refurbished and our street-facing hospitality spaces are up and running, we will be able to work on the relaunch of the Coffee Rooms. We hope to welcome back customers to this iconic venue before the end of the year.

We're happy to welcme you back to our Bar Cafe and Vicolo. We want to continue to keep you safe, so there'll be some changes when you visit. Please Follow the routing and signage around the cinema. Our team are on hand to help.

We've increased and enhanced our cleaning. We recommend you use the hand sanitiser stations available. We encourage visitors to wear masks when moving around the venue. Our team will be wearing them to keep you and each other safe.
