Located in the centre of Whitley Bay, Tyne & Wear. The Coliseum Theatre was opened in May 1910. It was extensively altered in 1919 when it was converted for cinema use, reopening as the New Coliseum Cinema. It was taken over by the Associated British Cinemas(ABC) chain on 23rd December 1929 and they made further alterations to the building.
It was briefly taken over by an independent operator from 22nd November 1970, until it finally closed as a cinema on 1st May 1971. It became an independent bingo club.
Plans were passed in 2004 for the auditorium to be demolished, and housing built on the site. The facade and front of the building was retained and is in retail use.
