The Dream Palace: A People's History of Tyneside Cinema

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.
