Located in the Perry Common/Kingstanding district of Birmingham. The Mayfair Super Cinema was opened on 14th September 1931 with Owen Nares in “The Middle Watch”. It was owned by Mayfair Cinema (Birmingham) Ltd. The fa├žade 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. A small parade of shops named Mayfair Place was built adjacent to the cinema and remain today.

The Mayfair Cinema was closed on 25th January 1964 with “Blood of the Warrior” and Joel Lawrence in “Road Racers”. The Mayfair Cinema was later demolished. The site is now a car park for an Aldi supermarket.
