Although we don’t know much about Crown Bingo South Shields, we do know a bit about the venue’s past. The venue originally opened in 1911 as the ‘Crown’. As you can see from the building’s exterior (below), it was not one of the more ‘plush’ cinemas of the era, but sometimes the ‘bland exterior’ of a cinema could mask a well designed and ornate interior. While open for both stage performances and film screenings, cinema appears to have been its main function until its closure in 1959. We are guessing that bingo took over in the early sixties, but are not sure, so, please let us know if have any more accurate information.

The photographs below were taken during a quieter afternoon session on the 26th of April 2013. There’s a couple really unique shots of what must have been a made to design carpet with both the name ‘Hearns’ and a bingo card. The photos give a great impression of the multilevel hall and its members. It’s always sad to see empty tables, but always good to see the youngsters in for a game too.
