There are plenty of deckchairs located on the old eldon square area (hippy green) in-front of NE1s big fancy screen.

They also picnic benches on either side which are ideal if your taking a pack-lunch.

There is also plenty of green space, you can bring a throw to pop down on the grass if the seating is all filled. – also Great for the little ones to have a run around if they get bored though-out the film.

We popped to Poundland before the show started for some cinema treats. Poundland is located on Clayton street and they have some great deals for the kids.

Fruit shoots were 2 for £1, they also have a deal 2 for 1 on chocolate or crisps – this could also be mix and match.

However, there is plenty of fast food companies around such as McDonald’s, kfc, Burger King or taco bell you could collect for their dinner as they watch the meal.

Greggs is also located right next to the screen, their is one on the street and also one in eldon square.

If your looking for a restaurant, we have a few eldon square kids friendly restaurants on this guide.

They have black bags on the fence area to dispose of your rubbish, if they don’t there is bins located on old eldon square you can get rid of your rubbish from.
