Warner Brothers, Manors (1989-2004)


Warner Bros multiplex cinema in Manors was opened by Kylie Minogue, with its first public film shown on 6th December 1989. The cinema was 'state of the art' for its time and had 9 screens, 3,384 seats and parking for 800 cars. It was built on the site of a former railway goods yard. The cinema was rebraneded as Warner Village in 1997, and then as the Vue in February 2004. However, the cinema closed on 15th April 2004. The site was purchased by Northumbria University and the cinema demolished to make was for City Campus East, which opened in 2007
