Tyneside Cinema – development continues

I’ve mentioned before that the Tyneside Cinema is being restored and expanded. The building is currently hiding behind the usual scaffolding and covers, so there hasn’t been much to see so far, but it seems I should have been there today. A BBC report tells me that the road was closed today for the installation of a large crane, which will be on site for six months, and will be used to raise the new roof structure. I’ll have a look this week to see if the crane is visible, and point my camera in its general direction if it is.
