The Clifton Cinema was built by the Sydney Clift chain of Clifton Cinemas at the corner of South Street and Westbury Street. It opened on 31st October 1936, with Elisabeth Bergner in "Escape Me Never". It was sold to the Essoldo chain in 1979, and film use continued until it was closed on 10th March 1980.

It became an Essoldo ‘Square Deal’ Bingo Club. It operated as a Top Ten Bingo Club until closing in 2010.

The Bingo operation closed in 2010. Despite requests to be listed, it looks likely that this former cinema will be demolished soon for re-devlopment.

I’m not sure where the person above has got the infomation from, but i can assure you the business is still running from the site, and there is restoration work taking place on the outside of the building at this very moment. this is coming from an somebody still employed with the business.
