Oh how I remember our Saturday morning matinee. I think it cost 6d to get in. There was a man outside selling big lollipops out of a brown suit case. After watching Gene Audtry, Roy Rogers and Flash Gordon we would go home and act out our own cow boy film. Happy days from 1945/1955 then I had to grow up

The architects of the Alhambra Cinema, Moseley Road, Birmingham were Satchwell & Roberts and it was built for the Leon Salberg and Sydney W. Clift circuit of cinemas named Cinema Proprietors Ltd. It opened on 26th December 1928 and had a seating capacity of 1,662.

It was taken over by Associated British Cinemas (ABC) on 1st April 1930. It closed as a regular cinema on 31st August 1968 and became an Asian cinema showing Bollywood movies before final closure and demolition.
