As live sporting action is being brought to the heart of the city the weekend, with big screens set up at Euros fan zones in Times Square and NX Newcastle, an annual event is also getting in on the act.

NE1 Ltd's Screen on the Green is back and will be joining in the mood by showing Wimbledon and the Silverstone grand prix too. And it soon will be following with the launch of its free film programme.

The big screen is set up, as usual, in Newcastle's Old Eldon Square where deckchairs are laid out for people to use on a first-come, first-served basis. Screen on the Green is part of the business improvement company's Summer in the City programme and this year it will feature around 100 films over its July 20 to September 1 run.

And film fans and families are in for a treat as the programme ranges from family favourites to classics and blockbusters, including Barbie; Mean Girls the Musical; La La Land; Mary Poppins Returns and - showing on the trot - all the Toy Story movies. Here is the list of films and their timings to note.

NE1’s Screen on the Green movie programme

Then six-week programme of movies will follow on from screenings of summer sport and the Tour de France. The main event launches on July 22, kicking off a schedule of two free films a day, at noon and 3pm.

There also will be Thursday blockbusters and, at 10am on Tuesdays, 'Toddler Takeovers' featuring shorter films and storytelling for younger viewers. This year there is an additional weekly 'Tyneside Takeover' pick too, with NE1 having teamed up with the city's independent Tyneside Cinema whose experts and film buffs have chosen a special Wednesday evening treat.
