Royalty Cinema, Birmingham

Public Consultation Stage

The Royalty Cinema in Birmingham is an art Deco Grade II listed building designed by Horace G. Bradley and built in 1930. It was converted to bingo use in the 1960s but has remained in a derelict state for at least 10 years. Despite this, the building is well-preserved, with high quality Art Deco finishes and fittings representative of an era of resplendent cinema design. Relatively few cinemas of this period survive in such a complete form.

In the last year the Harborne Royalty Trust was formed to prepare a public consultation and develop ideas for the building’s extensive refurbishment as well as a new dedicated community facility. Miller Kendrick are currently working closely with the Trust in the preparation of material for the community consultation as well as preparing commercial feasibility proposals. The public consultation will commence in September 2018.
