Newcastle’s only full-time independent cinema needs your help. It’s been presented with a glorious opportunity to
take over the empty shop next door and give its frontage an incredible overhaul as well as creating a new
cabaret-style ‘secret cinema’ and café bar. The refurbishment would mean a front entrance on Pilgrim Street as well
as the current bar being turned into a video art gallery and fourth cinema screen.
The target is £1.3 million and they are only £100,000 away! There are a number of different ways you can help
including donating online or by text, dedicate a cinema seat to a friend or loved one, or by becoming a friend of
the Tyneside. All the info and links can be found on their how-you-can-help page.
