The bingo hall was situated in what was once the Ritz Cinema. If you look at the picture of the building’s exterior below it looks like a fully modern building, however this was due the addition of an extension. The original cinema was opened in 1937, and with 716 seats was quite a small venue. The original exterior had a ‘fin’, a common cinema embellishment, although that has now gone. ABC cinemas took over in 1937, and Star Cinemas in 1939. In 1977 it was taken over by an independent who split the building for bingo and cinema (cine-bingo). However, from 1979 onwards it became a full time bingo venue, and was operated by Gala, until Ritz Bingo took over in August 2012.

As of November 2019, the site has planning for demolition to be replaced with luxury flats.
