Yes, I really am talking about Christmas ... in August!  I promise you I haven't lost the plot, I'm just very excited to share the details of Tyneside Cinema's Christmas Events and Festive Films for 2019. Everyone knows that the cinema's special screenings and one off events are the most sought after tickets in Newcastle at Christmas time and if you want to get involved it's best to get organised before it's too late!

Tickets to the Tyenside Cinema Christmas events are now on sale and with a bumper schedule packed with the most amazing events it's truly going to be a festive season to remember this year. From the cinema's famous classic screenings to live choirs and themed food events you'd best get your diary out, there are an incredible amount of amazing things you'll want to get booked.

To get you started here's my pick of the top 10 Christmas Events and Festive Films at the Tyneside Cinema in 2019!

Tyneside Cinema Newcastle - My Top 10 Christmas Events and Festive Films for 2019

It's A Wonderful Life

Let's start with THE biggest Geordie tradition shall we? I really can't talk about Christmas at the Tyneside Cinema without mentioning It's a Wonderful Life -film fans flock to Newcastle every year to cosy up in the Tyneside for their traditional screenings of It's A Wonderful Life.  This year there is even more opportunity to see the classic film with over 40 screenings showing at the Tyneside Cinema over the Christmas period including an afternoon tea experience, a baby friendly screening and  ...

A Night of Good Cheer: It's a Wonderful Life
22 December at 17:30

Imagine settling yourself down to an evening at the Tyneside Cinema with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie before being treated to a live choir singing your festive favourites. Welcome to a Night of Good Cheer! This is a screening of It's a Wonderful Life with a difference! As if that wasn't enough once the movie is over the celebrations continue with an exclusive party complete with a glass of fizz, festive fare and live music until late.

 ... would now be a good time to confess that I've never actually seen It's a Wonderful Life?

Festive Afternoon Tea
Available from 1 December
From £17.50 per person

No prizes for guessing that I'd be all over this one eh? We all know how much I love an afternoon tea and the Christmas offering at Tyneside Cinema looks incredible. If you've never enjoyed any of the food at the cinema you are really missing out, their afternoon teas are so good! The Festive Afternoon Tea includes a Mini Christmas Sage Sausage Roll, Turkey & Cranberry Mini Roll, Mince Pie, Mini Yule Log and Cranberry Meringue Pie.

Die Hard Double Bill
Saturday 7 December at 18:15
Tickets cost £15.00

Every year Simon and I have the same argument. Is Die Hard a Christmas film? Simon is very much in the "yes" camp, I'm a little undecided! Whilst it may not feature much Christmas cheer it's an incredible classic movie and is likely to tempt even the biggest Scrooge in your house out for an evening of festive fun.  Watch the first two films series back to back at the Tyneside Cinema.

Please don't tell Simon I haven't seen the second film ... he might disown me!

The Polar Express Family Event
Various dates in December
Tickets cost £15.00

Ever fancied rocking up to the Tyneside Cinema in your PJs (if I'm being completely honest I have been known to drive to the shops in my pyjamas before so this is definitely up my street). Receive your golden ticket in advance of the screening to show the conducter when you arrive where you'll be treated to a hot chocolate and homemade gingerbread man before watching the Polar Express on the big screen! PJs and Dressing Gowns are encouraged and after the movie the kids get to meet Father Christmas and collect a present.

Home Alone Double Bill

14 December at 18:30
Tickets cost £15.00

It isn't really Christmas until you've seen Home Alone and all true fans know that it's best to watch the first two films back to back. Ask me to pick my favourite and I actually can't! Whilst I do love the original, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York has a special place in my heart and has had me dreaming of Christmas time in New York ever since I first watched it.

The Grinch Festive Family Event
Varios dates in December
Tickets cost £10.00

Meet the Grinch at the Tyneside's Festive Family Event where kids on the good list will receive a bright green Grinch Shake & cookie and have their photo taken with The Grinch (I've met him and he's absolutely brilliant!) before settling down to watch the movie.

Another Christmas classic I'm yet to see - something tells me I'll be spending most of December in the Tyneside watching all the festive films I've missed out on.

The Holiday ... featuring The Survival Kit
13 December at 20:00
Tickets cost £20.00
Over 18s only

Want to know my favourite Christmas film?  It has to be The Holiday and the special one off screening at the Tyneside Cinema is right up my street as before the film starts you get a survival kit complete with popcorn, prosecco, chocolate and a handy pack of tissues to wipe away the tears (The Holiday always makes me blub so I will definitely need that kit!)

Christmas Eve at the Tyneside Cinema
24 December

Celebrating Christmas at the Tyneside Cinema is always special but this year it's going to be bigger and better than ever and if you really want to start your Christmas off in a magical way a visit on Christmas Eve is a great way to start the festivities.  With three screenings of It's a Wonderful Life or The Muppet Christmas Carol to choose from enjoy a classic movie followed by some food and drink in the Tyneside Bar Cafe - the perfect way to rest your tired legs after that frantic last minute shopping trip.

.. and all the Christmas Classics

If your favourite Christmas film is missing from my guide, do not panic! There are plenty of other festive favourites showing at the Tyneside Cinema during December including White Christmas, Gremlins and Scrooged!  Something tells me I'll be making a fair few visits.

I'd love to know what your favourite Christmas movies are and if you are planning a festive visit to the Tyneside Cinema this year.
