Originally opened as the Rialto Theatre in 1928, a part of the Orr Circuit. Originally a 1000+ seater venue, its life as a cinema ended in 1940 when it was destroyed by German bombers. The adjoining Rialto Casion Ballroom survived, and operated until 1960, when this part of the complex became a bingo club. In 1980 it became a Granada Bingo Club, before becoming an independent club that operated until around 2009.

The club was then reopened after restoration in 2012. They claimed at the time to be the first UK club to be 100% electronic bingo. We know this version of the club was open in 2013 when Michal Hess visited as part of our Bingo and Social Club Five Years Later commission. The bingo once again closed at some point after Michael’s visit, the venue reopening as a live venue which it continues to be to the current time.
