Destiny Church, Gorgie Road, Edinburgh
Destiny Church is a contemporary church in Edinburgh that began 10 years ago in a flat in the city centre. In August 2008 they opened a second worship centre in the city, a converted 700-seat 1930s cinema in Gorgie Road. Formerly the New Tivoli, it was designed by cinema architect James McKissack, and opened in January 1934, incorporating some of the fabric of the earlier Tivoli Cinema, in particular most of the facade, which was extended upwards and eastwards. Seating was for 1200, and the plans included stage and dressing rooms. This closed as a cinema in July 1973, and from then until 2006 was a bingo hall. The 1930s sand-blasted art-deco window decorations are still visible on the exterior, and the interior retains most of its 1930s detailing. The building was B-listed by Historic Scotland in 1993.
