Mecca Bingo Ellesmere Port, Whitby Road Background And History
The club was a cinema prior to bingo, the Queen’s Cinema, which opened in 1913. A small cinema with seating for 650, it was initially an independent, but was taken over by Southam Morris’ S.M. Super Cinemas in the forties, and again by Essoldo in 1954. It began running bingo as well as films in 1968, and during that same year, film screenings ceased entirely. At some point Mecca Bingo took over, only to close down in early 2004. The premises are now a showroom for bathrooms.
