    Really like those round windows at the top of the building. And love seeing both the new pics and the old pic when it was in operation.



    Cheers

    Interesting report :)

    Enjoyed looking through these pics. Sad to see it being left to rot. Still some nice original features by the looks of it.

    that pidgeon looks seriously ill!

    love old cinema's & theatres, sort of a ghostly atmosphere to them, not quite the same as hospitals though.

    Nice pics, i never knew light bulbs would float!

    Yes it first became a bingo hall in 1962 for Mecca and continued under various guises and names as a bingo hall until January 2007 when it closed.
