The Princess Bride Film Screening

Tickets on sale now.

This film is rated PG. 

'Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father, prepare to die.' In this 1987 romantic fantasy film, a grandfather tells his grandson the story of Buttercup (Robin Wright), a woman who loves the farmhand Westley (Cary Elwes), but who agrees to marry the wicked Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon) after Westley is believed to have been killed by the Dread Pirate Roberts. 

Open 7-days per week from 10am until 5pm, you can visit this family-friendly historic attraction, located in Newcastle city centre, to reveal the story of how Newcastle began, the reason the City got its name and to walk in the steps of the people who lived and died in the shadow of Newcastle Castle. Steeped in history this imposing Norman fortress, is a rugged reminder of Northern England's turbulent history.

Please note:

This film screening takes place in the Great Hall of Newcastle Castle Keep which is unfortunately inaccessible to wheelchair users. Doors will open at approximately 6pm, with the film starting at 6.30pm.

The Keep is a Scheduled Ancient Monument without any central heating, so therefore has a tendency to get quite cold. However, what it lacks in warmth, it certainly makes up for in atmosphere! The Great Hall is also only accessible via a steep flight of spiral stairs.

Therefore, we recommend that you wear suitable clothing and footwear.

There are no toilet facilities within the Keep itself, so please use toilets at The Bridge Hotel across the street should you need the toilet.

Reasonably priced refreshments will be available for all your sweets and drink needs. We aren’t a licensed venue, so for this event there will be no sale of alcohol. As we’re nice people, we don’t mind our attendees bringing in their own refreshments or drinks, but please consider that anything you spend with us help us to ‘Keep the Castle going’. If you do bring your own refreshments, we simply ask that you are respectful of the venue and other customers and tidy up anything you’ve brought before leaving.
