Apollo Bingo Llandudno, Gloddaeth Street 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 Apollo Bingo Llandudno, but we do know a bit about the building's past. Opening in 1920, the Palladium Cinema was quite a striking building, as we can see from the picture below. Even though with 1,420 seats it wasn't one of the larger cinemas, it was certainly a grand venue. A Grade II listed building, it had a highly decorated interior which included several boxes. It was well equipped for stage performances, with a 32 foot deep stage and an impressive eight dressing rooms.
Bingo started in the sixties, initially part-time, until the building was split by the Hutchinson Leisure Group. Apollo Bingo took over at some point, although closed in 1999. The premises are aparently still in good shape, now under the ownership of J.D. Wetherspoon.
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.
