Welcome To Jam Jar Cinema

"It's Like A Proper Cinema!" ... We challenge you not to be surprised by our little venue. 

Entirely run by local people Jam Jar Cinema is one of the country's leading community cinemas and we are North Tyneside and South East Northumberland's audience development organisation. We aim to be eclectic, popular and responsive to local need. 

 We are volunteer led and believe film and cinema can bring people together, strengthen communities and allow a momentary escape from our troubles. We are a teeny tiny venue with big ambitions. Our air conditioned main Screen seats 50 so relax in  luxurious premier seats, or on our leather sofas and enjoy  some of the most generous leg room in the land.

 Because of our intimate size we can guarantee you a widescreen experience that cannot be replicated.

We have a very popular foyer lounge bar, which is fully licenced, and you can take drinks into the screening room with you. We are open for drinks to the general public – even if you aren’t popping in to see a film.  Pop in for a coffee or a glass of wine, relax and no doubt an argument of which is the best film of the moment. 

Jam Jar Cinema as a venue is available for private hire, so if you want somewhere magical, cool and a bit different get in touch – we can do everything from birthdays to anniversaries, product launches to christenings.

And rest assured, as a Community Interest Company, every penny that is spent with us, on tickets, drinks or merchandise goes into future projects, all of our activity is charitable in law.

Accessibility: Please note access to the building is via 20 steps from street level. We have no capacity for independent wheelchair users to access the building
