The Venue

Small Local Map

The Star And Shadow Cinema is in Battlefield, Newcastle Upon Tyne. You can find us on the corner of Stepney Bank and Crawhall Road, opposite the Tanners pub.

The nearest Metro station is Manors. Turn right out of the station, and turn right up New Bridge Street. You'll see us on the right about 5 minutes walk up the road, next to the Tanners.

Buses 6B, 12, 22, 39, 40, 62, 63, 106, 301, 302 all stop just around the corner. Ask for the New Bridge Street stop, or mention the Tanners pub.

There is no car park at the cinema but if you arrive by bike you can park and lock it inside the building.

The bar, cinema and toilets are all fully wheelchair accessible. As yet we do not have a hearing loop system, but we do plan to install one as soon as possible.

For all our films, our standard ticket price is £5, or £3.50 for concessions (though exceptionally, some films may vary in price).


We organise many different gigs of very different types, so there is no standard price for gigs - please check the webpage of the each gig for details.


Concessions are available to students, the unemployed and the retired.
