Previous Names: Grand Picture Palace
Located in Ryhope, to the south of Sunderland, County Durham. The Grand Picture Palace was opened prior to 1914. It had a stage and presented cine-variety. Around 1930 it was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system and was re-named Grand Theatre.
The Grand Theatre was closed as a cinema in the 1960’s and was converted into a bingo club. This later closed and the building became a garage and auto parts store, which had closed by 2015. In April 2020 work began to dismantle the building which will be rebuilt at “Beamish, the Living Museum of the North” in Beamish, near Stanley, County Durham.
