The Gate, Newcastle’s premier leisure destination, ends 2017 with the launch of a new 4DX cinema from Cineworld on 20th December.

Cineworld has transformed the 2,635 seat cinema to create a next generation entertainment space for Newcastle. As the biggest cinema in the city centre, Cineworld at The Gate will offer visitors a truly immersive experience with its high-tech motion seats, and wind, rain, fog and lightening effects, as well as scents accompanying film screenings. This will be the brand’s fifteenth 4DX cinema and the first in the North East region.

This year, The Gate has also benefitted from a £3.5m refurbishment project which enhanced the public space and facilities, and improved lighting, wayfinding and signage. The Gate also commissioned a triple height glass and light centrepiece for the main entrance, designed by Newcastle’s Faulkner Browns.

Katherine Armstead, Senior Asset Manager for The Gate, at The Crown Estate said: “Bringing Cineworld 4DX to Newcastle in time for Christmas tops off a fantastic year for The Gate. Newcastle is a vibrant city, with an ever-changing social scene, and I am delighted that we have kept pace with this change.” 

John Hodgson, Cineworld Newcastle General Manager, said: “We’re really excited to introduce cinema goers to our new 4DX screen on the 20th December. There’s nothing like it and it can only be experienced in the UK at Cineworld. We’re opening the screen with a fantastic line-up of movies such as Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which have been perfectly adapted to suit 4DX. We cannot wait to see customers’ reactions when they try out the completely immersive experience!”
