Go to the movies 1930s style at Tyneside Cinema

NewcastleGateshead, Tyne and Wear

Live the glamour of 1930s cinema-going at this restored movie theatre, with free newsreel screenings, guided tours, a stylish bar and recent releases.

The lovingly restored Tyneside Cinema revives the sense of occasion that going to the movies used to evoke. This is the UK’s last surviving newsreel theatre to still be operating as a cinema full-time. It has recently been restored to preserve and celebrate the grandeur of its original 1937 Persian palace-inspired design.

Free newsreel screenings in the news theatre auditorium and guided tours provide a window into the greatest achievements and darkest hours of the 20th century, and a reminder of the social setting in which news was once consumed.

The varied programme includes old classics and new releases as well as musical events, and there is also a Bar Cafe, a digital art gallery, the traditional Tyneside Coffee Rooms, displays of heritage items and contemporary artworks to enjoy.

Newcastle is in northeast England, 2 hours 50 minutes from London by rail.
