The Astoria Bingo Hall closed down in 2010 and the building is looking the worse for wear with buddleia growing out of the wall and the signage starting to go. It was originally a cinema called "La Scala" and was also used for a time as a dance hall.
See how it looked when still open in 2007 on Hyde Daily Photo Vol.1.
Here is how it looks now from the bus station entrance.
