Date of closure: TBC
Address (for reference only):
Originally opened as the Regal cinema in 1937 and had been built for the All British Cinema Company. Films ceased in 1973 and it became an independent bingo club. Films returned in 1975 but were only shown 2 nights a week. The last owner of the club was John Angel of Angel Bingo who closed the site in the late 90’s along with some of his other clubs in Keynsham, Devizes and Evesham all for re-development.

Although the interior of the building and its decor appears to be intact, the visit most likely occurred after the club’s closure. Were you present in this picture, or would like to tell us about it?
