Supporting Local Cinema, Building Stronger Communities

Finding Us

Jam Jar Cinema is located in the Town Centre of Whitley Bay on Park Avenue. We are accessible from street level and are located directly opposite the Park View Shopping Mall, if you get to the new Library then you have gone too far!!!! 


All local bus services pass and stop at our front door regularly. Bus routes include: 308, 53, 53a, 59, W2, X6, X6a


We also benefit from being less than a 2 minute walk from Whitley Bay Metro Station and just around the corner from a taxi rank.


Cycle racks are located across the street outside the shopping centre and around the back at the new library – please note we don’t take any responsibility for you using these.


If you are traveling from further afield there are several places to park locally.


The nearest free car parking is located further down Park Avenue – 300 spaces in the Playhouse Car Park and the ‘old’ Whitley Bay Library. This is approximately a 5 minute walk from the venue. 

The roof of Park View Shopping Mall - £1.10 for your first 2 hours. (this car park closes at 6pm)

 There is also on street paid parking on Park Avenue, Roxburgh Terrace and Oxford Street - £0.50 per hour.


Save the planet and your pennies - please try to use public transport
