Yep your right Dek The caption gives info on The Carlton becoming the Coliseum, and is alongside The Capitol.... So still no picture of the Coliseum Max
Thats the Capitol Dek Alum Rock Road the caption is for the Carlton Saltley it became a cinema in 1912 with a name change to the Coliseum . Bombed during a Air Raid in 1941Max I,m not sure that caption is right for that picture house. I await confirmation from someone with more Knowledge than I. Dek
A book I've got about old Birmingham cinema's had a photo of the Bristol when it was a Cinerama! It is also on the front cover (Images of England: Birmingham Cinemas). The photo was dated 1963.
Flash Gordon brings back memories - I used to see the original at the Saturday matinee at the Villa Cross Picture house
