The Tyneside Cinema has been bringing transformative cinematic experiences to the people of the North East since 1937.

Presenting the best in independent, blockbuster and world cinema at our beautiful historic building, the Tyneside has been a place for discoveryfunsocialisinglearningand communitydecade after decade. Tyneside is at the heart of the community and is a home for local film lovers.

The Tyneside Cinema is now under the threat of closure, and we need your help to save it.

With audience numbers yet to return to pre-pandemic levels, cuts to our funding, and spiralling prices due to the cost of living crisis, we simply can't afford to meet the costs of running the cinema in 2023, and will soon have to close. If we close, it is unlikely that we would be able reopen, and an iconic cultural landmark will disappear.

But we have a plan: we are working hard to secure extra funding, and with some changes to how we work, and the support of you, our beloved audience, we can survive.

By acting now to raise £150,000 in the next 6 months, the cinema will remain open, and we will have the time to lay the foundations for the future into 2024 and beyond.

Help us reach this target and save our beloved cinema by donating now. On behalf of the whole team at Tyneside Cinema, we thank you for your support and we hope to see you soon.
