Film, Theatre and Performance

We know how to put on a show

Regarded by many as the UK’s finest theatre building, the Grade I listed Theatre Royal is the regional home of the Royal Shakespeare Company and a fitting venue for world-class productions from West End musicals to thought-provoking drama.

In a more intimate setting, you can take your seat right alongside the stage at Live Theatre, and find relevant takes on modern classics for all ages at Northern Stage. Or how about contemporary comedy and concerts in the world’s oldest working Victorian theatre? The Mill Volvo Tyne Theatre fits the bill perfectly.

A few miles down the road, Sunderland Empire showcases the best West End shows direct from London, while the PLAYHOUSE Whitley Bay is just right for an evening of culture after a day at the beach.

The Stand Comedy Club is billed as 'the best place for comedy' and it is an ideally intimate venue with a great atmosphere. Make sure you get there early because the food is great too.

Screen stars

We’ve got it all in the can for film buffs, from the brand-new IMAX cinema and entertainment complex atMetrocentre Qube to the bijou Star and Shadow Cinema in the Ouseburn valley.
In Newcastle city centre, you can head for The Gate, where you’ll find a multiscreen cinema, restaurants, bars and a casino under one roof, or the beautiful art-deco Tyneside Cinema, one of the oldest surviving newsreel cinemas, where you can enjoy the best new and classic films from around the world in sumptuous style.
