Where would we be without the cinema?
In 2017, Tyneside Cinema turned 80.
In celebration of this landmark moment, we have been working with our audience to make a film that tells the history of the Tyneside as well as the wider story of cinema-going around the world.
Featuring personal anecdotes from audience members, staff, and leading figures in film today – including Andrea Riseborough, Ken Loach and Mark Cousins – The Dream Palace captures a sense of what cinema-going is and what it means to people across the North East and beyond.
Tickets: £4.80/£4 for Friends of Tyneside Cinema
This unique film has been made possible thanks to the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund.
