Although we know that a business – the “Plumber’s Mate” is now located in the premises of the ex bingo club, at the moment we do not have the details of the events that led up to, or any of the circumstances surrounding the closure of Mecca Bingo Eastbourne. If you do have any details that may assist us, and you would like to share them with our site visitors we would love to hear from you. If you contact us, and let us know what you know, we will put the details online with your name credited. 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.

  1. This old cinema building stretches all the way down at the back of the new flats where I live built just over two years ago. It opened in 1914 as the Eastbourne Picture Theatre. Then in 1915 it became The Empire, 1921 The Elysium 1936, The Gaiety 1966, The New Classic Cinema, shutting as The Classic Cinema on November 17th 1973. Mecca very quickly moved in with Bingo. This stopped for Bingo reasons not known other than it was a small theatre compared to the Luxor in the town centre. Now full of current user Plumbers Mate gear, with a notice on the front in Seaside Road TO LET the interior is untouched. It could very easily be put back to cinema or bingo use. Would love to see that happen.

  2. Enjoyed my time here from Sept 1988 to 1989 as trainee Manager … still visit Eastbourne now and wander around the area
