Anyone have a photo of the TIVOLI that was on Cov rd in Yardley? Spent many afternoons snogging in the back of that one. John Crump OldBri. Parker. Co USA
The Tivoli cinema has a thread to itself and there is a photo from Phil on #8. Annoyingly, the thread is entitled "Tiverley cinama". Is it possible for the kind admin people to correct this title?

When the Mayfair cinema was demolished a petrol station was built facing onto the College Road, and behind this a cul de sac of 11 houses leading off Sunnybank Avenue which was named Mayfair Close.What about the Mayfair Cinema on College Road, Kingstanding. Where the Cinema was is now the Mayfair Passage.
I haven't read all 1400 or so entries to this thread so this may be a repeat. But I came across this letterhead that I thought might be of interest

dated 1937 and shows connection with several Birmingham cinemas Bristol, Victoria, Solihull, Regalia and Mayfair. My mother in law had worked at the Bristol for twelve years 1925-1937 and she received references from A.G May and A.W. Rogers.
I worked for Sidney Clift in the late 50s. I worked at Cinema Accessories Ltd in Corporation Street in the Film Booking Dept. We did all the admin and for the Clifton Cinema Group.
wasn't Tom Clarke Albert Rogers Son In Law? and Ray Adams was just an ex ABC Manager who had experience in both cinemas and bowling who they employed as General Manager when Alf May retired ?
