The Tyne Theatre

Impresario Oswald Stoll converted some of his theatres to cinema use, changing the seating of the Grand Circle to improve visibility and installing a projection box at the back of the upper circle. The bioscope of early cinema attracted audiences, and front-line newsreels fed the changing appetite.
The Tyne Theatre and Opera House opened on 2 June 1919 and was renamed the Stoll Picture Theatre. After five years, it celebrated its 100th anniversary as an independent theatre in April 2014, before becoming another free venue in January 2015.
In its five years of independence, the theatre has achieved significant and growing success, which will serve as a solid foundation on which to build over the next decade.
The listed theatre was built in 1867 by industrialist and politician Joseph Cowen, who envisioned a theatre for all at a time when life in heavy industry was tough. The last performance took place on a cinema screen, which was thrown on stage during the First World War.
The first renovations were carried out for unemployed children from the poorest areas of the city, and well over 100 shows were performed during their musical years, described in a history board on the walls. In the 1950s, the theater returned to its original purpose. Jack presided over enthusiastic amateurs who performed in front of an audience of about 1,000 people, many of whom were unemployed.
Theatre director Joanne Johnson said: “It is an absolute pleasure to welcome the Russian State Ballet and the Russian Opera House this year. Tchaikovsky’s timeless ballet was performed in front of more than 1,000 people at the Tyne Theatre. No wonder the performance was captivating Swan Lake is one of those exquisite ballets that can delight all ages.
Tickets for the show on Tuesday, November 26, are available at the prices of PS30 for restricted view and PS25 for standing room only. Last December, the APAC Newsletter included a three-day film festival organized as part of the theater’s 150th anniversary celebration.
This month’s blog extends this article and describes the history of the archive and when it became public, as well as the film festival and the history of the theatre.
