Fantastic Beasts

Enjoy Fantastic Beasts with a wizard Afternoon Tea at Tyneside Cinema

Opens Friday 18 November – Afternoon Tea With Fantastic Beasts- Saturday 19, Sunday 20, Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 November, 15:00

This November Newcastle’s Tyneside Cinema will be celebrating the release of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them with special Afternoon Tea screenings of the film.

The Cinema will be offering magic folk and Muggles the chance to indulge in an wizard themed Afternoon Tea in the Tyneside Bar Café, which will include Cauldron Cakes and endless refills of tea and coffee, followed by a screening of the film in their Classic Circle.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is the latest film in the wizarding world of Harry Potter.  Written by Potter author J.K. Rowling, the film stars Eddie Redmayne (The Theory Of Everything) as Newt Scamander, a writer who arrives in New York during the 1920s with a magically expanded briefcase, containing a fantastical array of dangerous creatures.  When the creatures escape from the briefcase, it’s up to Newt to find them before the muggle world learns too much about the secret wizarding world.

Tyneside Cinema’s Head Of Marketing & Communications, Zeinab Lenton said:

“Fantastic Beasts is such a huge film for Potter fans out there and we wanted to give them the chance to make it even more special and memorable with these Afternoon Tea screenings. 

“A scrumptious selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes hand-made by our Tyneside Bar Café chefs coupled with a screening of the film in our luxurious leather Classic Circle seats is the ultimate way to experience Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

Plus, with themed quizzes and specials like Butterbeer on the menu, there’s plenty going on at Tyneside Cinema for Harry Potter fans to enjoy.”  

As well as hosting the Afternoon Tea screenings, Tyneside Cinema is also offering the chance to add a Butterbeer and Cauldron Cake to your ticket, as well as Family Ticket for four people (including one person under the age of 15) for £28.
