Lisburn Exiles Forum

(Site is no longer operational pending a major long overdue overhaul of the entire website. Thank you for your patience. Site should still be visible and searchable for old posts.)

The Lisburn Exiles Forum is dedicated to the memory of James Goddard Collins (The Boss) who single-handedly built LISBURN.COM (with a lot of help from many contributors) from 1996 to 29th November 2012. This website was his passion and helping people with a common interest in the City of Lisburn around the world is his lasting legacy.

Penny Arcade

Does anyone remember the old tin hut in the alleyway off Bow Street, opposite Antrim Street, where they used to have the slot machines? I can recall the mc. with pictures of Jane Russell, Ava Gardener, Marlyn Monroe and Eliz Taylor, and you bet on which one the flashing light would stop at.

Re: Penny Arcade

I remember the Arcade, it was owned by a huge Englishman who sat on a high bar stool and anyone who caused a disturbance or wasn,t playing the machines was pushed out with his ernormus stomach. He died very suddenly and the place was standing unused for a long time. I think it must have opened around 1959.
