The Bingo appears to have ended in ca 2009 according to the auctioneers currently advertising the forthcoming sale of the building, apparently in a poor state, with a very low suggested price.

Castle and Central cinemas owned the cinema from at least 1924 and ran it on 2 changes of programme per week at prices of 5d to 1/3d. They installed Western Electric sound system to see it into the sound era. It was noted as having 890 seats in 1951 when prices were 0d to 1/9d.
