Savoy Bingo Folkstone, Grace Hill Background And History
We are not sure about exactly why the bingo hall closed, but we do know a bit of the background of the venue. Opening as the Electric Theatre in 1910, the venue originally had seating for 400 and was renamed the Savoy Theatre in 1928, before the entire building was destroyed in a fire in the same year.
A year later the cinema had been rebuilt and reopened, now with 932 seats, owing to the addition of a balcony. After a brief closure during war, the cinema reopened and continued to show films until the early 1960s after it had been taken over by Star Leisure, who changed the venue to the Star Bingo Club. We are not exactly sure of any other changes of ownership, or why the club closed, so if you know something about the club, please let us know, we'd love to hear from you.
