    The Royalty Cinema was designed by Horace G. Bradley, and opened on 20th October 1930 with Maurice Chevalier in "The Love Parade". It was built for and operated by the local independent Selly Oak Pictures Ltd. It was taken over by the Associated British Cinemas (ABC) chain in March 1935. ABC closed the cinema on 2nd November 1963 with Cliff Robertson in "P.T.109". It was converted into a Mecca Bingo Club and in 2010 it was operating as a Gala Bingo Club.
