Carlton Bingo Edinburgh, Gorgie Road Background And History
Originally the Tivoli Picture House, the bingo hall closed in 2006 after a long run, under ownerships of Mecca Bingo, and latterly Carlton Bingo. A grade 2 listed building, it was of the Art Deco style which most of the theatres of the day were. It opened as a bingo hall in 1973, and lasted 23 years before its closure.
It is no longer a bingo hall. It is now used as a Rock Gospel venue, and the building itself remains relatively intact. Although its purchase by a church may not hearten local bingo players, at least the building has remained within 'the community', as opposed to being converted into a profit making venture such as a block of flats, so there is still some hope left for the future.
