The Argosy Dance Hall-cum-cinema had a conversion twice a week, Tuesday and Sundays. The projectionists were George Rae and Jack Begg who were also the two projectionists at the News Theatre in Diamond Street.
The Argosy belonged to a Baillie Burns, who had other such places in the northeast. The building still exists at Bucksburn Fountain although it has been closed for some years after being a Bingo Club.

The entrance is the small 'brown wooden' doorway with the dustbins outside. The other photo is of the rear of the building seen from the track that goes up to Blacksmith's Croft Mobile Home Site, which is built on the side of the old Adament Granite Quarry.
