Located in the Handsworth district of Birmingham. The Rookery Picture House was opened on 18th April 1914 with “The White Witch”. It was operated by G.F. McDonald, and was advertised as ‘The Coolest House in the Midlands’. Seating was provided for 700 and the proscenium was 20 feet wide.
The Rookery Picture House was equipped with CinemaScope around 1954, and the proscenium widened to 23 feet. Around this time it was renamed Rookery Cinema, but this was short lived as it was closed on 6th February 1957.
The building became a dance hall for a while. By 1983 it had been converted into the Gurdwara Bebe Nanaki temple, and in recent years, the frontage of the building has been rebuilt.
