Today, the drop-down menu in the search box features ten places called Hamilton, but this Hamilton is still missing. What has JavaScript got against Scotland?

This web forum page features several more exterior and interior photos of the Vogue Bingo Club from around the time of its demolition.

Four places called Hamilton appear in the drop-down menu in our search box, but for some reason this Hamilton is not among them. I only found this page for the Gaumont Hamilton from its link on the page for the architect. Maybe that’s why it hasn’t gotten any comments in more than four years.

The plan to retain the facade is no longer happening, and an application has was submitted in Dec ‘07 to completely demolish the building. As of the start of March '08, the auditorium has been demolished as far back as the balcony front until the decision on the facade is taken. Photo gallery of the demolition here, as well as interior photos taken two years ago, showing the effect of dereliction and asbestos-stripping works. Note in particular the interesting proscenium and the 1920s posters in the roof void.

N.B. The building opened in 1921, not 1927 as noted above.
