Date of closure: TBC
Address (for reference only):
At the moment we do not have details of the events that led up to, or any of the circumstances surrounding the closure of the Seldon’s Bingo Liverpool, but we do know a bit about about the venue’s history.
The venue was originally the Kensington Cinema (initially named The Picturedrome), which opened in 1910, a small cinema with seating for less than a thousand patrons. The cinema closed in 1958, probably being one of the earlier victims of the popularity of the television.
The building underwent several changes of use until settling as a bingo hall and amusement centre in 1977. We are not sure when it closed, but by 1988 it had become a snooker club, and is now a J.D. Wetherspoons public house.
If you have any further details that may assist us, and you would like to share them with our readers, we would love to hear from you. If you let us know what you know, we will put the details online with your name credited (if you wish, or we can credit the article as anonymous). 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.
