In addition to our film programme, we run projects for young people, offer subsidised tickets to those in need, give free tours of our fascinating building and show daily original newsreel footage.
All of this, as well as the ongoing maintenance of our historic 1930s cinema building, is supported by donations from the public.
Whether you choose to make a regular donation or a single gift, your support makes a real impact on the lives of people across the North East and beyond.
What a superb way to spend a Sunday every month. Being served afternoon tea themed on the film you are about to watch is one of the memories of my year so far.
