Located in Bedlington, Northumberland. The Palace Theatre was opened as a variety theatre in 1896. It had a full stage and 5 dressing rooms. At the turn of the century it began screening films as part of the variety programme. It suffered damage from a fire in 1927.

The Palace Theatre was restored in 1928, and in 1929 it was equipped with Western Electric(WE) sound system. It was taken over by Wallaw Picture Ltd. in 1930 and in the 1930’s it was rebuilt in an Art Deco style. It was re-named Wallaw Cinema around 1939.

The Wallaw Cinema was closed in the middle of August 1966. By 1969 it had been converted into a nightclub named Lucy’s, and last operated as the Palace nightclub which closed around 2005. The building was demolished to build a block of flats name Elmfield Court on the site.
