Mystery solved. Ironically now has a 25 seat cinema in the basement! Former textile factory apparently.You are probably right but there do appear to have been a number of small picture houses around. Just enjoying wandering round and getting some exercise to be honest!
Wonder if anyone recalls the old "Vic" on Victoria Road Aston. From memory and not positive think that was where I
used to go to the Saturday morning matinee in the 50s I remember seeing Batman in black and white and Roy Rodgers. It cost 6d in.
