and live on Freeview channel 276
Cinema chain Vue has venues in Hartlepool, Gateshead, Cramlington and Darlington. The company says the event will be screened in “selected UK venues” and confirmed all four of the region’s sites are among them.
Tickets are free of charge and available through Vue’s website.
Vue said: “We will be screening the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, in selected UK venues on Monday, 19 September, live from 10am.
“Seats will be free of charge and our retail offering on this day will be limited to complimentary bottled water during the broadcast, with no other snacks or drinks available for purchase. On this day we will not be showing our normal programme of films.”
Almost every other cinema in the North East will be closed on September 19, but will be open as normal the next day.
