Tyneside Cinema

Situated on the corner of Pilgrim Street is Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle’s beloved independent cinema which plays films from all over the world. Throughout the year the Tyneside offers various film series to the public, in relation to art and culture from many different countries and backgrounds.  


Language Café

The Tyneside cinema also hosts a Language Café. The cinema offers the opportunity to see a wide variety of foreign language films, These films can be enjoyed solely on their own or accompanied by a free meet-up after the film showing where you can voice your thoughts about the film in its own native tongue. Whether you are a native speaker, a student studying the language or are brushing up on your GCSE knowledge, the mood will be informal and relaxed. Details about the next German Language Café shall be added as soon as it is added to the Tyneside cinema calendar. 

MFL Study Days

The Tyneside cinema offers a series of MFL events in the autumn and spring terms. These include half day events for GCSE and full day for A Level. They include watching a film in the target language, and carrying out written, group and speaking activities based around the themes and ideas featured in the film, but also linking to the curriculum. They are facilitated by professional MFL educators and supported by Student Ambassadors from Routes Into Languages, who lead group activities and give information about further language study.
