Located in Seaton Delaval, to the northwest of Whitley Bay, Northumberland at the corner of Seaton Terrace and Sinclair Gardens. The Queen’s Hall was built in 1912 and opened as a cinema on 26th August 1912. It had a 36ft deep stage, and dressing rooms. The proscenium was 37ft wide. Around 1930 it was equipped with a British Thomson-Houston(BTH) sound system This was later replaced by a GB-Kalee sound system.

The Queen’s Hall was closed as a cinema on 23rd August 1967 and went over to use as a bingo club. It had closed by 1998 and the building was ‘For Sale’. It has since been demolished and housing has been built on the site.

I am not sure that the date of 1963 for closure is correct. It was still advertising films in 1967. The last date that I can find is 23rd August 1967 although that doesn’t mean that it closed then. It seems to have been showing films for three or four nights a week, so perhaps 1963 was when it went over to bingo part-time.
