Previously known as Monument Movies, Screen on the Green moved to Old Eldon Square in 2016 and has grown exponentially ever since, delivering a bigger and better event each summer.
Alongside the screening of over 80 free films during the 6-week school break, Screen on the Green also screens eclectic sporting and cultural events including Wimbledon, the Olympic Games, FIFA Women’s World Cup, and live-streamed performances from such notable bodies as the Royal Opera House.
With its focus on offering fun, family-friendly, and free activities which bring extensive footfall into the city centre and the retail core in particular, Screen on the Green is one of NE1’s most popular initiatives among both businesses and consumers.
“NE1’s summer of activity in Old Eldon Square completely transformed the area, making it the best summer we’ve ever seen in that space. The events and activities brought families and groups into the city and succeeded in making Old Eldon Square a place in which to spend time.”
