Theatre and Performance in NewcastleGateshead

The North East is a thriving cultural region with an abundance of amazing cinemas and theatres in Newcastle and Gateshead.

Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle's oldest and most-loved independent cinema, offers film fanatics a huge choice of new releases and classic movies. Housed in a beautiful art deco building on Pilgrim Street, the recently renovated property also includes a stylish bar cafe.

For those who want something a little more mainstream, head to The Gate Cinema Newcastle or The Odeon, Gateshead at intu Metrocentre, where you can enjoy films in stunning 3D IMAX. And if you're looking for smaller and more quirkier shows, try the Side Cinema or the Star and Shadow Cinema - two independent venues ran by city volunteers who love Newcastle cinema.

The Theatre Royal Newcastle, regional home to the Royal Shakespeare Company, and the Sunderland Empire, often referred to as the West End of the North, provide the region with world-renowned shows and performances such as The Lion King, Wicked and Top Hat.

For something a little different in the heart of the city visit Northern Stage, where fresh and relevant productions of modern classics have helped build a strong national reputation. Or perhaps take a trip to the Live Theatre on Newcastle Quayside, where their strong regional identity is represented on the stage.

In the neighbouring towns you'll also find smaller venues such as South Shield's Custom House, which also has a cinema and gallery, and the hi-tech Whitley Bay Playhouse, where developing regional talent provides truly intimate and original performances.
