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 Mecca Bingo Paisley, but we do know a bit about about the venue’s history.

The venue originally opened in 1912 as the Picture House. I later years it underwent an interior Art Deco refurbishment, and this created seating for over two thousand eight hundred patrons, making it one of Scotland’s larger cinemas. It had facilities for live performances as well a cinema screenings.

In 1960 Mecca Bingo purchased the venue, and bingo continued for about twenty years. The building has sadly been demolished.

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.

  1. This hall was closed to accomodate regeneration of Paisley town centre. The original Entrance is all that remains, and is the main entrance to the paisley shopping mall. More info can be found via the Paisley Daily Express
