County Bingo Dundee, Cowgate Background And History

At the moment we do not have details of the events that led up to, or any of the circumstances surrounding the closure of the County Bingo Dundee, but we do know a bit about about the venue's history.

The venue opened on 15th March 1909 as the Kings Theatre & Hippodrome. With seating for 2,227, this was a large theatre with interior design in both Rococo and Baroque styles. In 1928 it was taken over by Provincial Cinematograph Theatres(PCT), and was reopened as the King’s Theatre Cinema. A year later it was taken over by Gaumont to be re-named Gaumont in 1950.

After another rename to Odeon in 1973 it closed in 1981 to reopen as County Bingo in 1983. Bingo ceased in the late 1990s, although we don't exactly know why, and the building now has a cafe on the ground floor.

If you have any further details that may assist us, and you would like to share them with our readers, we would love to hear from you. If you let us know what you know, we will put the details online with your name credited (if you wish, or we can credit the article as anonymous). You will be doing a service to the bingo community and posterity by helping us record details of all Britain's bingo clubs and halls. Thank you.
