Star Bingo Thirsk, Market Place Background And History
We don't know much about Star Bingo other than the fact that it closed in 2005, and opened sometime between then and the sixties/seventies. Originally the Regent Cinema, it opened in 1935 with a very small capacity of 400. Originally an independent, it was taken over by Star Cinemas, who brought in bingo part-time, and latterly full-time. The conversion meant removal of much of the original interior, but what was left is no longer there to be seen, as the building was demolished in 2006.
