Carlton Bingo Hall
Carlton Bingo Hall

On the corner of Kings Park Road is the former Allanpark Cinema. Designed by Sam Runcie it was built for the Stirling Cinema & Variety Theatres Ltd and opened in 1938. It was acquired by Caledonian Associated Cinemas in 1969 and in 1977 the cinema was twinned with each screen having approximately 300 seats, by dividing the circle in half, with a false ceiling over the stalls, which were then used for bingo. In the late 1990s ownership passed to Carlton Bingo, who continued to show films until 2008. LinkExternal link
