The Late Shows – A Silent Movie Extravaganza

The Late Shows is a cultural event taking place in Newcastle and Gateshead this coming weekend when 45 arts venues that are normally closed in the evening will be opening their doors to the public.

Creative business space The Shed is being transformed into the Adelphi Film Theatre, where you can attend a Silent Movie Extravaganza celebrating the golden years of cinema on the evening of May 14th. You'll be able to create your own film in their handmade Hollywood film studio, step into the Cinema for One for a very special cinematic experience or create your own 1920's headpiece at the Dress Store.

You'll also be able to purchase works from The Shed's resident designers, including the wonderful Kate Usher whose 1920's themed wallpaper will be used behind the bar on the night.
