Located in the south Birmingham district of King’s Heath. The Kingsway Cinema opened on 2nd March 1925 with Clara Bow in "Down to the Sea in Ships" and Max Linder in “Circusmania”. Seating was provided in stalls and circle.
Towards the end of its cinematic life it was taken over by the Essoldo circuit. It closed on 3rd May 1980 with John Huston in "The Bermuda Triangle" and the documentary feature "Encounter with Disaster".
It was converted into an Essoldo bingo club, a use it still retained in later years as a Gala Bingo Club, which was closed in 2007.
The empty building was badly damaged by a fire which occurred early in the morning on 17th September 2011. Work began on demolishing the building in mid-March 2018. It is hoped the façade will be saved.
