    The final stop on my tour around the Black Country, the Royalty Cinema is located in Harborne, Birmingham. It is a multi level cinema has was converted into a Bingo Hall. It is currently empty with no certain future in sight. The Cinemas former car park now plays host to an eastern European Carwash. The seating on the ground floor has all been removed with a fake flat floor being installed at the time of conversion into a Bingo Hall, however some parts have been removed and you can see the sloped floor and the markings left behind by the seating. The balcony area has had the first 10 (or so) rows of seats removed and a level floor installed. However a lot of the original seating still remains on this level. The buildings last occupants were Gala Bingo who closed the building for the last time in 2010. Then in November 2012 police raided the building removing 40 cannabis plants from the attic area.

    Good luck mate, it is handy if you want to get your car washed at the same time.

    Everyone just asks the car wash guys to go in now. Rather takes the fun out of it!
