As rated by visitors:
No ratings yet!

Please note that due to phenomenal demand for tickets, we've moved this screening to the Classic! If you already have a ticket for the Electra, you'll now be sitting in the art deco surroundings of the Classic stalls.

Here it is - the winner of The North East’s Favourite Romantic Film 2013 is... Amelie. Jean-Piere Jeunet's (Delicatessen) warm, romantic, totally feelgood movie is a much-loved Tyneside favourite and is definitely the perfect movie for Valentine's night. Packed with off-kilter characters in a nostalgic, picture-postcard Paris, Jeunet has created a world in which we’d all like to live in. Follow the wonderful Amélie Poulain (Audrey Tautou, Coco Before Chanel) as she searches for the recipe for true love and the way to help others find happiness.  Heart-swelling cinema at its best.

To make this screening even more romantic, there’ll also be complimentary chocolates for everyone who attends, courtesy of those lovely people at Traidcraft. Plus there’ll be special Valentine’s Day cocktails available in the Tyneside Bar too.

More Valentine's films at Tyneside Cinema Don't miss Audrey Hepburn's iconic romantic comedy Breakfast at Tiffany's on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 February, or if you're looking for something a little less slushy check out the Free Film Night: Anti-Valentine Week in the Tyneside Bar!

All’s fair in love … and chocolate!  Traidcraft’s new chocolate is more than just delicious fair trade chocolate to enjoy and share. The UK’s leading fair trade organisation helps smaller scale cocoa and sugar farmers get a fair deal so their communities can flourish.
