Having already had very successful screenings at the end of last year and January this year, there’s another great chance to catch Newcastle On Film at Tyneside Cinema on Wednesday 31st August, as the film which packs in some incredible archive footage of this beautiful city many of us call home gets another showing.
If you do live in, work in, know or even love Newcastle, you’ll not want to miss this, as you can see the evolution of an incredible place that forms an identity for those which dwell within it, as well as having a strong identity of its own. Key moments of history from 1901 onwards are shown, including a Suffragette Demonstration at Newcastle in 1909, quickly followed by rare early footage of The Hoppings on the Town Moor and highlights from the Newcastle Amateur Cinematographers Association collection.
The building of the new Tyne Bridge to the bustling Quayside Market, shipbuilding success stories to Saturday nights out at the Majestic, the decades pass by through some incredible images, that’ll give you a new appreciation to the history that lies in every brick and every step you take on your walk back through the city.
