Located in the Bensham section of Gateshead city centre, on Saltwell Road at the corner of Macadam Road. The Palladium Picture House was opened at the end of September 1911. It was designed by Newcastle-upon-Tyne architects Simpson & Lawson. Seating was provided for 176 in the stalls, 195 in the pit (rear stalls) and 218 in the circle. There was a small stage and dressing rooms.
Variety acts were introduced to the programming in the early-1930’s. Talkies arrived here in 1931 when a British Thomas-Houston(BTH) sound system was installed.
The Palladium Picture House was closed at the end of May 1967. It was demolished in 1970. Today Pearts Motors operates from the site.
