Located in the Perry Common/Kingstanding district of Birmingham. The Mayfair Cinema was opened on 14th September 1931 with Owen Nares in “The Middle Watch”. It was owned by Mayfair Cinema (Birmingham) Ltd. The facade had a central section in white stone, which had three tall windows over the entrance. Seating in the auditorium was provided in stalls and circle levels and the proscenium was 45 feet wide.
