Lights and Shadows on the Wall

  • 1 November 2013 — 1 November 2018 *on now

After many years hidden from view, architect Peter Yates’ amazing 1976 mural was rediscovered when the Tyneside Cinema was refurbished between 2006-08. You can now see it - lovingly restored - on the wall of the Electra screen on the Cinema's fourth floor.

Peter Yates began his career as an illustrator and model-maker, and took drawing lessons in Paris from Georges Braque at the end of the Second World War. He was a founding partner of Ryder and Yates, an architectural practice responsible for some of the most innovative and individual buildings built on Tyneside from the early 1950s onwards.

The mural was restored thanks to the sponsorship of Ryder Architecture and The Pilgrim Trust, under the direction of conservation architect Cyril Winskell. Be sure to take a look next time you're watching a film in the Electra screen or take a FREE Guided Tour of the building - it’s a must-see gem.

Graham Dolphin: Dialogue

  • 1 November 2013 — 1 November 2018 *on now

A real highlight of the new Bar Café is a specially commissioned artwork by visual artist Graham Dolphin. The mural, which is almost six metres long and 1.5 metres high, is made of 30,000 words of classic bar scene dialogue from almost 100 different films, from It’s a Wonderful Life, to An Autumn Afternoon, from The Apartment to Star Wars. The script extracts have been hand drawn directly onto the wall in pencil to create a mural which echoes the dramatic three-dimensional typography of film noir titles.

Dialogue is the latest addition to the decades-long tradition of mural making within the Tyneside Cinema. Peter Yates’ amazing 1976 mural Lights and Shadows on The Wall was unearthed in the development of Tyneside Cinema in 2008, which you can now see - lovingly restored – on the wall of the Electra screen.

Jarman Award: John Smith

  • 28 November 2014 — 11 January 2015 *on now

Tyneside Cinema and Film London Artists' Moving Image Network present the UK première of White Hole, a new work by John Smith, winner of the 2013 Film London Jarman Award, the prestigious annual prize that celebrates UK artists working with moving image.

White Hole is presented in The Gallery, our new space dedicated to the commissioning and exhibition of artists’ moving image work, and it is co-curated by Elisabetta Fabrizi, Tyneside Cinema’s Curator of Screen-based Media, and Film London Artists' Moving Image Network, the organisers of the Jarman Award.

In the artist’s highly personalised style, the installation starts with his memories of two visits to Eastern Europe, taking the viewer on a journey of opposites and reversals, positives and negatives.

Sebastian Buerkner

  • 15 January — 25 February 2015

Sebastian Buerkner’s award-winning 3D installation transforms The Gallery into a beautiful, virtual space of stereoscopic digital animation. Wearing 3D glasses, you’ll see the world through the eyes of the main character as he moves through an abstract landscape filled with shards of light and colour.

The artist uses cutting edge digital technology to create stylised interiors and ambiguous scenery, and the work retains a distinctive cinematic feel through engaging storytelling and heartfelt dialogue, which explores themes of longing, intimacy, loss and identity.

The Chimera of M. won the Tiger Award for Short Film at the 2014 Rotterdam Film Festival and is nominated to compete in the short film category of the 2014 European Film Awards. Buerkner is also shortlisted for the 2014 Film London Jarman Award.

Please note that this installation includes some strong language.
