Coral Bingo Penge, High 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 Coral Bingo Penge. We do however know a bit about the venue's history.
The venue was origianally an Odeon, which opened in 1937 with seating for over fiteen hundred patrons. The exterior had glass towers, as well glass panelling, and the interior was designed like many cinemas of the day, with concealed lighting, and decorative grilles.
The cinema closed in 1976 and was immediately converted for bingo. Coral took over in 1978, and lasted for 12 years before closing. Unfortunately the building was demolished in 1994, and a bar built in its place. If you have any photos of the orginal cinema we'd love to hear from you, as it is be a shame to have lost this building completely, but at least some photos would help preserve its memory.
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.
