At the Tyneside Cinema, we give a trip to the pictures the sense of occasion it deserves.We show the best films in stylish and beautiful surroundings, and our varied programme ranges from brilliant films from all over the world to the best Hollywood has to offer. As the last surviving Newsreel theatre still operating as a cinema full-time in the UK, our Grade II-listed building is an important, must-see piece of heritage, not just regionally, but nationally too and it has been lovingly restored to preserve and celebrate the grandeur of its original 1937 art deco design.

Love the fact this is a smaller independent cinema, with a choice of cinema screens with smaller to larger numbers of seating capacities and various films showing. Our first visit for a number of years. The cinema room we visited was smaller, feeling more intimate for a romantic evening as part of birthday celebrations, with comfortable seating. The reason for... More

The Tyneside Cinema is one of Newcastle's cultural jewels, with a pedigree to match. The programming is creative, with left-field choices running alongside the best of mainstream film. Each of the screens has a different atmosphere, from the theatre (with circle) classic, to the more intimate screening rooms on the upper floors. Seats are comfortable and the audience appreciative. Friendly... More

As far as I'm concerned this is the best place in the world. The range of films, screenings and events they have on here is amazing, the seats are comfy, the food is good, and the staff are really friendly. The clientele are always really respectful as well, so you can watch a film in peace and quiet, without having... More

We got married in the Classic Screen and it was amazing all of our guests couldnt get over how beautiful it was. The extra touches,... More

An amazing cinema that is to retro, nice leather couches to snuggle up in. This could well be the nicest cinema we have been in.

Since moving to Newcastle this has quickly became my favourite Cinema, easily overpowering the generic ones elsewhere which have little tradition or atmosphere. This cinema has a few different screens, with the main screen being in a theatre format, offering a more traditional way of enjoying film. Tyneside is great for catching new & upcoming indie films which aren't often... More

Visited on a Tuesday afternoon with teenage son. The entrance fee of £5 came as nice surprise ( there's a deal on a Tuesday) , we were able to choose our seats and chose the premier seats, lovely comfy sofas with lots of leg room. The theatre itself is really interesting, posters on the walls telling its history, friendly welcoming... More

You can eat beforehand and take your glass of wine in to the film.I have been so impressed I have bought 3... More

Whether you're meeting friends in the bar, using the meeting room facilities or going to see a film on your own, the Tyneside Cinema is super comfortable, welcoming and offers a much better experience than any chain cinema! Great choice of films and extra events.

An independent cinema with a wealth of interesting features and great choice of films main-stream and otherwise. If you like cinema this is the place to go in Newcastle - and they've got a great bar as well.
