Located in the Stechford district south-east of Birmingham. The Atlas Cinema was opened on 6th March 1938 with Diana Wynyard in "Cavalcade". It was a brick building, whch had the central section its facade in white stone with five large windows at circle foyer level and another five smaller windows above. The name ‘Atlas’ was above these. Inside the auditorium seating was provided in stalls and circle levels, and the proscenium was 40 feet wide.
Always independently operated, the Atlas Cinema was closed on 30th May 1959 with Laurence Harvey in "Room at the Top" and Donald Wolfit in "Mail Van Murder". It became a wrestling venue for a while. Then the circle was divided from the main auditorium and became a bingo club, with the stalls level being converted into a garage. It had now been demolished.
