The Ritz

Originally known as the flea pit this is the Ritz. This photo was kindly donated by Merlin Cinemas. The Ritz later became Mecca bingo hall and later taken over by Rank Bingo. Today it is in private ownership.
D'ont mean to be boring but I agree with Treeve, it was The Regal ( now long gone ) that was called the flea pit, as I remember, I even remember going there as a very young child, mind you my memory aint as good as it used to be, lol
 
Anyone recognise this chap?

The organ is long gone, but the lift machinery that brought it up through the stage is still all there. :)
