Tyneside Cinema presents The Cinematic North East


Tyneside Cinema celebrates the history of the North East with a season of iconic films made in the region. If you have a penchant for the North East of England and film then Newcastle’s Tyneside Cinema has a new film season that is perfect for you.This summer, Tyneside Cinema will be celebrating the history of the North East through a season of special screenings of cinematic classics both set and shot in the region.

Opening on 4th July, ‘The Cinematic North East’ will take you on a journey over the decades and throughout the region, from Billy Elliot foot–stomping his way through the terraces of County Durham, to Harry Potter and Queen Elizabeth I roaming through the spectacular backdrops of Durham Cathedral and Alnwick Castle, and from Redcar Beach’s impressive performance as Dunkirk in Atonement, to Michael Caine deciding that the now demolished Trinity Square car park is the perfect place to throw Bryan Mosley off in Get Carter, which will screen alongside the World Premiere of a brand new ‘Get Carter Redux’ project as part of the Great Exhibition of the North. The season will feature several special guests appearing to discuss and present the films on show.

There will also be an opportunity to see lesser seen masterpieces made in the region, such as Payroll, Women in Love, and Stormy Monday; a selection of archival screenings presented with partners North East Film Archive and Amber Films; an exploration of the legacy of legendary local politician T Dan Smith; and a celebration of several BBC films rarely seen on the big screen, including Ken Loach’s epic classic Days of Hope, Alan Clarke’s 1987 film Road, Ken Russell’s documentary The Bedlington Miners’ Picnic; and Roland Joffe’s classic Play For Today set in Gateshead, United Kingdom.  

As part of the programme the Tyneside will screen the ‘Newcastle On Film’ series, a film journey from the collections of the North East Film Archive that shows you Newcastle across the decades, from the building of the new Tyne Bridge to the bustling Quayside Market, early footage of Newcastle United and a lesson in how to ‘Larn Yersel Geordie’.

Tyneside Cinema will also be taking part in the Remake a Take movie trail with a celebration of the iconic Yorkshire classic Kes.

The Cinema is featuring a pop-up film still on High Friar Lane outside the main entrance where you can take a selfie with film’s most loved bird of prey Kes. Now showing until 9 September.

Presented by Northern Film & Media for The Great Exhibition of the North the Remake a Take film trail by artist Roxy McKenna, celebrates amazing films made in or inspired by the North of England through as series of ten playful film stills positioned across Newcastle and Gateshead.
