Blackfriars Ouseburn Cinema!





From October, we will be hosting an exciting new Community Cinema with a difference…

Blackfriars Ouseburn Cinema (The BOC) is a new not-for-profit, pop-up community interest cinema with regular screenings at Blackfriars @ The Ouseburn; a Community Centre run by the St Vincent de Paul Society, opposite the Tanners Arms on Byker Bridge.

The BOC will offer a different way to experience film. Screening in a large beautiful hall with a dimly-lit ‘cabaret style’ table set-up, a traditional intermission (during longer screenings) and even refreshments delivered directly to your seat!

Launching in October with twice weekly screenings, the BOC will show a mixture of independent, cult and classic films all at bargain prices with Full Price tickets only £5.00, Students/Seniors £3.50 and U18s/Concessions just £3.00.

We will also be hosting our first themed film parties; including a ‘Saturday Night Fever’ 70s Costume Film Party (on Saturday 8th October) and an ‘Addams Family’ Halloween Costume Film Party (on Saturday 29th October). Both nights will be real celebration of film and music with everyone encouraged to dress up, dance and singalong if they choose. For more info, directions and tickets, visit:
