a rather wet day and very little sleep for me having been at work the previous night obligatory splore followed by Sunday lunch at maccies, i thought i would use the daily fails awesome History on the site for this report incidentally we beat them here by a few weeks thus they are tourists!

inside has a lot of original decor also all the seats still there unfortunately when it rains the water does come in and the basement is flooded

Royalty Cinema in Harborne was designed by architect Horace G Bradley at height of Britain's love affair with films
But the theatre soon fell into disrepair, and now stands empty save for an Eastern European car wash outside
In 2012 a cannabis farm was found in the attic after police noticed a suspicious smell around the building
