The Star and Shadow Cinema is a community and arts space run entirely by volunteer members.
It is a venue that provides a haven away from the mundane mainstream of film and music; a nursery for independent creativity and thinking. We do not exist to make a profit, our purpose is to provide a facility for programming films music and events that do not happen at other venues around Newcastle.
The cinema also has a social space with a quiet bar and cafe. The aim for The Star And Shadow Cinema is to provide the conditions necessary for to be a real co-operative place where groups deprived of a voice can find a home.
