Cinephone seen here (in the first few seconds of this mini-video) during its avant-garde early 1960s period http://www.macearchive.org/Archive/Title/midlands-news-15111963-sex-film-at-the-cinephone/MediaEntry/6606.html

This was our cinema so I believe many of your readers could be interested to know more about my late Grandfather Joseph Cohen. I have only recently added to my website ‘The History of Jacey Cinemas’ with over 300 images of press cuttings and photographs from the early 1930’s onwards. He was also involved in property and other projects, so there is a lot of information about him (not previously available on the Internet). Please do have a look at: – http://www.jncohen.net/JaceyGroup/JosephCohen.htm

exterior shot taken around 1990 when the Fiat dealership had moved out, by this point you could wander into the derelict building, the interior had been stripped back to plain concrete walls, wish i had taken more photos

I can remember one day the cast of Crossroads TV show came to the Cinephone for a visit, Sandy came to the box for a tour, do you remember that show, Audrey from Coronation Street was in it.

The projectors had to be put on one foot stands to clear the heads of the people in balcony, the theater also featured a floating screen with a white picture frame and no masking for regular size films and cinemascope, the manager at the time I was there was Mr Ron Catton, he lived in Sutton Coldfield.
