Tyseley Cinema

Located in the east Birmingham district of Tyseley. The Tyseley Cinema was opened in 1916. It was built for S & E Cinemas Ltd. and County Cinemas Ltd. It was designed by well known Birmingham based architect Archibald Hurley Robinson.

In 1930, a balcony was added, which increased to seating capacity to 930. It was taken over by the Oscar Deutsch chain of Odeon Theatres Ltd. in September 1939. It was closed in December 1940 due to German bomb damage. It was re-opened by an independent operator in 1941.

In 1954 it was taken over by the Newcastle based Essoldo circuit. The Tyseley Cinema was closed on 29th November 1959 with Tony Curtis in “Six Bridges to Cross”.

It was converted into offices for a printing company. In recent years it has been used by a car body parts company DBP (Midlands) Ltd.

It is too bad that so much of the cinema’s once classic entry has been lost.
