Shepherd markets former cinema and bingo hall at Boswell Park in Ayr

SHEPHERD Chartered Surveyors is bringing to market a former cinema and bingo hall in Ayr as a development opportunity for sale or lease.

The Art Deco Category B Listed former cinema dates to the 1930’s and was used until recently as a bingo hall. The layout is typical for a building of its time with the main auditorium taking up the majority of the floor space running to the full height with much of the original character retained.

The 31,000 sq ft property occupies a prominent position on the south side of Boswell Park between its junctions with Sandgate and Douglas Street set amongst a variety of licenced, leisure and retail users. A large car park lies adjacent to the property.

Accommodation comprises foyer and vestibule, main auditorium, bar servery, cellarage/stores, kitchen/prep area, staff office, W.C. facilities on the ground floor and, on the upper floor, circle, upper circle, viewing boxes, offices, staff rooms and projection room.

Shepherd Partner Kevin Bell said: “The property has Class 11 consent but is suited to a variety of uses subject to planning. Interested parties should make their own enquires with South Ayrshire Council.

“Our clients will consider offers subject to planning although clean offers are preferred. Interested parties are advised to formally note interest as a closing date may be set.”

Offers over £400,000 or rent offers over £60,000 per annum are invited. Interested parties should contact the sole selling and letting agent for further information on 01292 267987.
