There’s four themed all-nighters to choose from.

There's plenty of spooky fun happening around Newcastle this Halloween but the Tyneside Cinema's spine-tingling all-nighters may well be the most hell-raising option.

The cinema is embracing Hallwoon festivities by inviting customers to spend the night from sundown on Saturday, October 30 until the sun rises on Sunday, October 31.

However, this is no sleepover and the cinema will be full of screams rather than snores.

The Tyneside Cinema is showcasing a number of Halloween classics, as well as new projects, that fit the mood for the spookiest night of the year.

There are four different options for horror film-lovers to chose from, if any are feeling brave enough to spend the night glued to the screen.

Customers book each film separately, so can hop in and out as they please, but with prices from £3.33 per ticket, it is feasible to watch them all.

Here's how the options break down.
