Located in Ashington, Northumberland. The Wallaw Picture Palace was opened around early-1912 and had a seating capacity for 450. Permission was granted in 1914 to replace the building, but this was halted by the outbreak of World War I.

In 1920, the Wallaw Picture House was rebuilt, and re-opened with 1,100 seats. It was operated by the Wallaw Pictures Ltd. and became the head office for the company. It was equipped with a British Thomson Houston(BTH) sound system in 1930.

By 1943 it had been re-named Wallaw Cinema. In 1972 it was taken over by the Noble Organisation, and they continued to operate it as a cinema until it was closed on 31st July 1982 with Albert Finney in “Annie”. It was converted into a shop and an amusement arcade.
