Located in Shildon, County Durham. The Magnet Cinema was opened around Christmas 1910. The auditorium was built behind a row of terraced houses, one of which contained its entrance. It has been said that the projection box was a former bedroom! After World War I it was re-named New Magnet Cinema and in the 1920’s became the Magnet Picture House. In 1929 it was equipped with an AWH sound system.
After the end of World War II it was re-named Rex Cinema. It closed around 1960 and became a bingo club, which remained open until the 1970’s when it was closed and the building was demolished.
