When Associated British Cinemas(ABC) took over the Union Cinemas chain in October 1937, they acquired the partially built Theatre Royal in Kings Lynn. A former theatre had been destroyed by fire and Union Cinemas were in the process of completely replacing it to the designs of Keeble C. Allflat. It opened under ABC control on 4 April 1938 with 1,030 seats and a full stage (with high fly tower) and dressing rooms.

It closed on 14 April 1962 and was converted to a bingo hall. Over the years, this has been modernised, but there are still many decorative features remaining inside the auditorium.

Interior shot from 2014 here. The club has very recently changed from Gala ownership to Ritz Bingo.
