Originally opened as the Longford Theatre, its design was of the Art Deco style, and included a marble foyer, and it had seating capacity for around two thousand patrons. The cinema was bought out by Essoldo in 1950, and continued to show films until its closure in 1965 when it was bought out by Ladbrokes. Ownership changed to Top Rank in 1986, and although bingo is no longer being called, the building still stands.

One thought on “Stretford Top Rank Bingo – Chester Road

  1. I worked in this Bingo hall for 2 years in my younger days before going into the Fire Service. Had a really great time and lovely memories. All the staff were great to work with and the punters were a great crowd, especially the regulars. I will always look back on fondly From on the days of my youth. If anyone out there remembers my name it would be great to speak again :) best wishes all. ..
