Wallaw, Blyth


The Wallaw Cinema on Union Street in Blyth opened on 16th November 1937 with 1,600 seats. It was designed by Percy Lindsay Browne, Son & Harding, for the Wallaw Pictures Ltd. of Ashington. The cinema had a series of different owners, including the ABC chain. The cinema closed in 2004 and the building was disused for many years until it was purchased by the J.D. Wetherspoon chain. The building was renovated and retains close links with its cinema and film heritage; 'The Wallaw' pub opened on 10th December 2013. The building is Grade II listed.
