Screen on the Green

NE1’s much-loved open-air cinema Screen on the Green takes over Old Eldon Square each summer with sensational film screenings and sporting action.

People sat on a temporary grassed area watching a movie on a big cinema screen

Showing two to three free films per day from late July to early September at Old Eldon Square, Screen on the Green is the perfect summer activity. Grab some popcorn or a bite to eat from a neighbouring restaurant, relax in one of NE1’s iconic deckchairs and take in some top-class movies – from big blockbusters and family-friendly films to cult classics and rom-coms.

Alongside over 80 films, Screen on the Green also screens amazing live sport events including action from the FIFA Women's World Cup, Wimbledon and Tour de France.

This year, we're also introducing a brand-new addition to Screen on the Green with Toddler Takeover - screenings perfect for families with young kids.

For more information, check out the full 2023 film, sport and Toddler Takeover schedule below and stop by Screen on the Green for some fun this summer!

Film schedule

Please be aware, some of the films we show may be classified as 12A. These will be marked on the web schedule. A notice will also appear on the screen before these films. For more info on the 12A rating, please see below.

British Board of Film Classification: Films classified 12A and video works classified 12 contain material that is not generally suitable for children aged under 12. No one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. Adults planning to take a child under 12 to view a 12A film should consider whether the film is suitable for that child. More information can be found:
