The Roxy Bingo Hall is currently for sale at the bargain price of £45,000 reflecting the property’s need for upgrading. It is in a good position very near the centre of this attractive little Lancashire town.
Built on the site of the Bacup Public Hall/Gem Cinema/Kozy Picture House. It opened in late-1931 as the New Regal Super Cinema with 960 seats split between stalls and balcony. It is constructed of stone with a largely white faience facade the circular shield once spelt out ‘Regal’ but has been changed to bingo. It was designed by local architect Harry Cropper.
Above the diminutive entrance is a large stained glass window which lights the circle foyer. It has a particularly wide proscenium for a relatively small cinema at 45 feet.
Despite the estate agents warning, the building is solidly constructed and appears superficially to be sound, but there seems to have been some vandalism inside. It is believed that the building is Grade II listed.
