Michael Hess: Ritz Bingo, Newcastle Upon Tyne

Ritz Bingo is situated in the old Ritz Cinema which opened in 1936. The decor is quite plain compared to some old style bingo halls, the era of grand embellishments was on its wane at the time the cinema opened. The stylings of the club add a touch of thirties’ style, augmented by the photograph of Humphrey Bogart on the wall. This is exactly the sort of hall that appeals to fans of cinema and bingo together, and with a selection of great character shots shows the club’s members enjoying their game.
