We are not sure exactly what happened to Gala Bingo on King’s Heath, so we would be extremely grateful if you could enlighten us. If you let us know about the events we will credit you with the information of course, so, if you do know what happened, please contact us.

We do know that the Bingo Hall resided in what used to be the Kingsway Cinema. The cinema opened in 1925, and closed in 1980, with “The Bermuda Triangle” being the last film shown.

Update

Any potential return to bingo in the club has been dealt a further blow, with the outbreak of a fire on 17th September, the cause of which is being treated as suspicious. The fire was so big that many nearby residents and businesses had to be evacuated until the fire was brought under control.

Update

It looks like the building is not going to be rescued, but partly demolished and turned into an apartment complex. The good news is that the facade at the front of the building will be kept, so despite the loss to local entertainment at least some architectural and cultural integrity will be retained.
