The Tyne Theatre & Opera House opened in 1867 and was designed by architect William Parnell. It is one of only a few Grade I listed theatres in England. The theatre was used as a cinema for many years before reverting to theatrical use in the late 1970s, and is now overseen by registered charity the Tyne Theatre & Opera House Preservation Trust.
