Prince of Wales Cinema

In Bedlington, Northumberland, the Prince of Wales Cinema began as a live theatre in the early-1900’s, later going over to silent films and then talkies.

It was not listed in the 1914 Kinematograph Year Book. The 1927 edition listed the owner as F.L. Hastwell, c/o C. N. Walton, Darlington.

The 1940 edition also listed Mr Hastwell. By the 1953 edition the owner was Mrs Emily Hastwell, possibly Mr Hastwell’s widow. The 1953 entry gave the proscenium width as 22ft.

The Prince of Wales Cinema closed in 1963. It became a bingo hall then, in the 1990s, a health club. More recently it has been home to Paramount Health & Fitness.

I passed this obviously ex cinema today (6/9/17) on a bus to Morpeth. It is still the Paramount health and Fitness Club!
