    Dr. No was 1962 (a classic with Ursula A. BTW......) so I think the Bingo bit was after that. The original article did say it became Bingo in the 60's.

    Could if have been doing both functions at the same time?

    I dare say that has been the fate of a number of cinemas and theatres over the years.

    Have any Liverpool ones managed to remain but reused for different functions?

    My optician in Los Angeles had hisoffice inside the shell of a cinema, at least they basically left the facade alone in that case...
