Free Outdoor Cinema in Newcastle | What's On at Screen on the Green


NE1’s Summer in the City programme launches at the end of June with the welcome return of NE1’s Screen on the Green. NE1’s large, free, open air cinema at Old Eldon Square is the first of NE1’s summertime events which are set to transform the city throughout the summer, designed to give people a vibrant, safe and colourful welcome back to the city. Scroll to the bottom of this post for a full guide to what's on and when.

Finding Screen on the Green is super easy, it is on the green / outdoor area of Old Eldon Square - take the exit next to Pizza Express / Starbucks / Nandos and you will see it. There is no booking required! Simply turn up and grab a seat. Some people bring their own picnic blankets too. It is easy to reach by public transport with Eldon Square Bus Station and Monument Metro both being less than a 2 minute walk away.

Kicking off the Screen on the Green schedule will be two weeks of live action from the iconic Wimbledon tennis championships starting on 28th June, followed on the 23rd July by the live screening of the Olympics Opening Ceremony from Tokyo, and then on the 24th July by the live streaming of Newcastle Pride which is a virtual event again this year. The schedule will then switch to movies with a six-week programme of big hitters - classic movies, family favourites and some new blockbusters to be enjoyed throughout the school summer holidays. 

Two films will be screened each day, the first at 12 noon will mainly feature family favourites and kids’ movies with a varied range of styles and genres each evening at 6pm. Different themes run through the listings this year, with Rom Coms (Romantic Comedies) on Monday evenings; ‘Throwback Thursdays’ featuring cult classics, and iconic movies from the 80s and 90s, whilst Friday night is Blockbuster night as Screen on the Green gives people the chance to finish the working week in style and settle in for the best and most recent Hollywood big-budget, popcorn movies.

These Friday screenings will also give many people their first chance to see some of the biggest movies that were released during lockdown 2020 when cinemas were closed due to the restrictions. Audiences will be able to enjoy these films on the big screen as the directors intended. Christopher Nolan’s latest mind-bending blockbuster, Tenet will grace the big screen, as will the recent smash hit, Godzilla vs Kong, with the recent instalment of the DC-Comics extended cinematic Universe, Wonder Woman 1984 screened the day after its predecessor, 2017’s Wonder Woman, as part of a Wonder-ful movie weekend.

NE1’s ubiquitous deck chairs will be set up for cinema seating together with bean bags, picnic benches and grass seating all providing additional space to sit around the edges of the screen.

Among the 2020 and 2021 film releases lined up for Screen on the Green, titles include; 

  • Godzilla vs Kong
  • Summerland 
  • Trolls; World Tour  
  • Tom and Jerry The Movie
  • Emma 
  • Witches – the remake with Ann Hathaway and Chris Rock
  • Ordinary Love starring Liam Neeson.
