Having enjoyed the talk given by Margaret Dodds, a volunteer guide for the Tyneside Cinema, 20 members followed up by visiting the Cinema on 26th July. 
    The morning was fascinating, with Margaret proving to be a fountain of knowledge on all aspects of this fascinating local icon, her love of the place obvious to all.  
     As we toured the building, on one of the hottest days of the year, we took huge pleasure in sinking into the wonderfully comfortable seats of the various studios, cocooned in the welcome blast of very effective air conditioning! 
     The trip concluded with a delightful lunch in the Art Deco Coffee Rooms.
