The Tyneside Cinema is running a Sponsored Film Marathon to help raise money for the Tyneside Cinema Appeal.
Raising money for the Tyneside Cinema’s brand new cinema screen, video art gallery and café and bar, the Marathon features five exclusive film premieres. You’ll also get exclusive training tips for building up your 'watching film tolerance' (or 'WTF') and a Tyneside Cinema Appeal wristband.

Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, 2001) stars as Ivan Locke, a man on the edge. On the eve of the biggest challenge of his career, Locke receives a phone call that sets in motion a series of events that will unravel his family, job, and soul. All taking place over the course of one absolutely riveting car ride, Locke is an exploration of how one decision can lead to the complete collapse of a life.
We Are The Best! (15)

Filmmaker Lukas Moodysson (Together, 2000) perfectly encapsulates what it’s like to be 13 years old again. A massive hit on the festival circuit, the film follows the exploits of three teenage girls in Stockholm in 1982, who form a punk band - even though everyone says that punk is dead, and they can't play any instruments yet. It really is the best!
Mystery Road (15 TBC)

Aussie acting legend Hugo Weaving (The Matrix, 1999) stars in this tense and slow-burning modern-day western set in the Australian outback as an Indigenous detective who returns to his home town to investigate the murder of a young girl.
The Strange Colour Of Your Body’s Tears (18)
Courtesy of Metrodome. Original title: L'étrange couleur des larmes de ton corps. In French, Danish and Flemish with English subtitles.
This kaleidoscopic psychodrama is a disorientating, visually stunning film with a wonderful dreamlike quality that you will never forget. Following the disappearance of his wife, a man enters a web of intrigue as he tries to uncover her whereabouts. Traversing the labyrinthine halls of his apartment building, he encounters inhabitants whose tales of sensuality and sadism play out before him.
The Lunchbox (PG)
