Elf cinema

Elf @ Tyneside Cinema


Sunday 11th December 2022


Meet outside Northumbria Students Union entrance at 17:15.


Join us as we head to Tyneside Cinema to enjoy Elf, arguably one of the best Christmas films around.

Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel star in this unforgettable tale of a human raised by Elves. Slapstick hilarity, wit and charming quirkiness make this an undeniable slice of comedy gold.

You would be hard-pressed to find a bad word to say about Will Ferrell’s lovable performance as the yellow-tights-clad Buddy.

Buddy, who is raised by Elves and energetically descends upon New York like a festive fish out of water in search of his real father. Slapstick hilarity, wit and a charming quirkiness, make this an undeniable slice of imaginative comedy gold. Bumbling love, physical comedy, and a quotably brilliant script (“So…good news, I saw a dog today.”) all combine to make this an endlessly entertaining sleigh-ride of silly!

It's A Wonderful Life @ Tyneside Cinema


Wednesday 14th December

Meet outside Northumbria Students Union entrance at 17:00.

Join us as we head to Tyneside Cinema to enjoy It's A Wonderful Life.

Considered one of the most beloved films in cinematic history, It's A Wonderful Life has become essential viewing during the Christmas season and a Tyneside Cinema tradition.

Jimmy Stewart is George Bailey, a good man who has descended into despair because he considers himself cheated out of the life he could have had.

His Guardian Angel Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers), arrives in his hour of need to show George how loved he is by everyone in his small community of Bedford Falls and what life would look like without him.

A timeless story of redemption and hope that is an absolute treasure, returning to our screens in a beautiful new digital restoration. Guaranteed to bring tears and smiles in equal measure, this is a Tyneside Cinema Christmas tradition that’s too good to miss!
