NE1’s Screen on The Green returns Saturday 1st July in preparation for a summer of free, open air screenings of family movies, national and international sporting action and a major coup for the city, a new cultural offering, two open air Operas broadcast directly from the Royal Opera House in London.

Monday 24th July sees films return to the screen, with two each day all the way until Sunday 3rd September, barring 10 days of World Athletics Championships live from London. Film listings will be announced soon but keep an eye out for them, the strongest line-up Screen on the Green has ever seen! 


A series of family favourites, classic movies and new releases will be part of the schedule with Sundays devoted to Smooth Sundays, brought to you by Smooth Radio. The Smooth Radio team will be on hand during the screenings and there will be opportunities to win VIP prizes.


An essential part of summer in Newcastle, NE1 are proud to offer our outdoor cinema to one and all every year. We host free film screenings of family favourites, new movies and old classics on a huge cinema screen in the heart of the city at Old Eldon Square!
