Located in Ashington, Northumberland. The Regal Theatre was built on the site of the Miners' Theatre by Wallaw Pictures Ltd. It opened in 1939, and had a 39 feet wide proscenium. The orchestra pit could hold 15 musicians, and it had an organ (make unknown). It was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system.

It was taken over by the Noble Organisation in 1972, and they closed the Regal Theatre in November 1979 with “Elvis the Movie”.

The building then lay derelict for several years until it was eventually demolished, and a nursing home named Station Court was built on the site.
