Located in the Stirchley district to the south of Birmingham. Opened as the Pavilion Cinema on 28th November 1931. Large auditorium had seating in stalls and and circle levels. In the early years, children had to queue outside on a Saturday morning in what was called the “tupenny crush”.
It was taken over by Associated British Cinemas(ABC) in 1934. The building was changed into a combined cinema and bowling alley in 1962, when the bowling alley was built beside the cinema building.
The cinema was closed on 28th December 1968, and was converted into a bingo club, with a cafe in the circle area. The former Pavilion Cinema was demolished in 2004.
