Aston Cross Picture House

Located in the Birmingham inner-city district of Aston Cross, to the north of the city centre. The Aston Cross Picture House was opened in May 1913. Designed by architect Archibald Hurley Robinson, who was a director in the operating company.

Taken over by the Associated British Cinemas(ABC) chain in January 1929.

It was closed by ABC on 3rd August 1963. It was then re-opened by an independent operator screening Asian (Bollywood) films. This use lasted for several years. After closing, the building stood derelict for several years, before being demolished in the early-1980’s, when the entire area was re-developed.

This Cinema was built and on the screen in around 8 weeks from the foundations being laid… No messing in those days..
