NE1 Screen on the Green

Screen on the Green is back for another jammed-packed summer schedule of sports, classic films and a brand new toddler takeover until Sunday 3 September, located in Old Eldon Square.

Grab your Starbucks and pull up a deckchair for this free open-air cinema experience to entertain the entire family. From blockbuster titles to family favourites! Sports fans will be delighted with a collective mix including FIFA Women’s World Cup, and Wimbledon all streamed live.

This fantastic free activity will keep the kids entertained all summer long; films include Encanto, Coco, Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation and Top Gun: Maverick.

If you’re looking for things to do in Newcastle, why not check out the new addition to NE1’s Screen on the Green programme, Toddler Takeover is a free event taking place at 10:30am on Tuesdays from late July through August with screenings of BBC adaptations of much-loved Julia Donaldson’s children’s books.

To add to the magic, there will also be fun storytelling sessions from Seven Stories, so pull up a picnic blanket, get comfy, open your juice cartons and enjoy this fun-filled event with the kids.

Feeling peckish? Don’t forget many of our restaurants offer a takeaway service, so why not enjoy that film with a cheeky Nando’s or a refreshing drink. Eighty films will be screened, with two movies daily running until Sunday 3 September.
