At the Star and Shadow Cinema, we programme films, gigs, live art and exhibitions. Anything that we believe that is new, different, underground, original, and, we hope, good. The company is run entirely by volunteer members, with all members having a say in what we do and how we do it.
We do not exist to make a profit, our purpose is to provide a facility for programming the types of films and events that do not happen at other venues around Newcastle. These may be locally made or inspired films, art films, political films, international films, gay and lesbian films, classic films or independent cinema, local musicians, international musicians, or artists and storytellers of all kinds.
