Located in the Handsworth district of Birmingham. The Grand Picture Palace opened on 27th September 1911.

It was closed around 1953, never having installed CinemaScope. The building was taken over by John Blundell Ltd., who seemed to specialize in taking over old cinemas around that period of time and converting them into their chain of furniture stores.

It re-opened in the late-1970’s as an Asian cinema, known as the Grand Palace Cinema screening East Indian (Bollywood) films, and Kung-Fu films on every Friday. It was closed in 1982, and by 1984 was standing derelict.

It has since been demolished and a small shopping centre named Soho City has been built on the site.
