Local historian Steve Peak said the building that houses the present bingo hall was a cinema until 1965 when it reopened as the De Luxe Bingo and Social Club, with the last film a few days before being She, starring Ursula Andress.

In 1970 major changes were made to the building, with the bingo hall moving to the upper floor and the ground being given over to amusements machines.
