Extraordinary new images revealed


Fletcher Priest has revealed images of an extraordinary new e-digital cinema in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The proposals transform the Tyneside Cinema - opened in 1937 and the only purpose-built 'news theatre' still operating as a cinema in the UK - to include a translucent box on the roof and a fourth screen and provide facilities from the production to presentation of moving images for film and media businesses as well as the local community. This follows the practice's work for the Screen cinema chain, Madame Tussauds' London Planetarium, the Science Museum's 3D Imax cinema and Europe's leading digital post-production company, the Moving Image Company.
