Again, Ken, you are missing a trick. Prior to its becoming a MacDonalds restaurant, a substantial part of the building spent several years as a casino. Run as a Ladbroke’s Sporting Club, the entrance was from the old Lyon’s Corner House, on the corner, from where a staircase led up to a large gaming room, which ran across the full front of the building, above the cinema foyer.

A 1988 shot here – newly trashed to become McDonalds

apparently the barrel vaulted ceiling with its decorative plasterwork remains and is a training centre for McDonalds staff, the separate entry is at the rear of the building
