At last year’s celebrations we took it upon ourselves to choose a selection of influential, exciting and excellent films from around the world that had either been special in the history of the Tyneside, or had captivated audiences across the years, and showed them in a stupendous continuous 75 hour screening event. After that thrilling event we then threw the gauntlet down to you lot to tell us what you thought were the best films of the last 75 years.
Well you didn’t disappoint, as since then we’ve received thousands of nominations for a wide range of incredible films. We’ve taken your nominations and pulled together a selection that we think gives a definitive list that we’re delighted to be able to screen to you in our 75 Years Of Cinema extravaganza over Saturday 26th-Sunday 27th May.
There’ll be 25 hours of film in each of our three screens, with tickets for each film just 75p. You can join us for the whole 25 hours or just pick and choose some of your faves, or even try something you’ve always meant to watch but never gotten round to. The bar will be open if you need a break (or a serious dose of caffeine) and even if you can’t make it you’ll be able to follow our live Twitter feed to keep up-to-date with all the cinematic mayhem. #75yearsofcinema
