Buffalo Cinema

Located in the Hurst district of Ashington, Northumberland. This was the main meeting hall for the Independent Order of Buffalos. It was converted into the Buffalo Picture Palace in around 1910. It had a 28 feet wide proscenium.

By the late-1920’s it was re-named Buffalo Cinema and was operated by Wallaw Pictures Ltd. In 1930 it was equipped with a British Thomson-Houston(BTH) sound system. It was given an Art Deco style makeover.

The Buffalo Cinema was closed on 26th August 1967. It was converted into a bingo club. This has since closed and the building has been demolished.

As can be seem in the later photographs of this cinema, Wallaw Pictures Ltd. gave the old fashioned looking hall a make-over at some point, receiving an updated look in the art deco style.
