Going past this LA Fitness place on Bristol Road South in Longbridge, I thought that this must have been a former cinema, and I think it was.

It is a 1375 Bristol Road South, which was the address of the former Danilo Cinema.

Which was at 1375 – 1401 Bristol Road South.

The Danilo Cinema opened in 1938. It was taken over by Essoldo in 1954. It closed as a cinema in 1968. After that it was converted into a bingo hall, and since then a fitness centre.

Designed by Ernest S Roberts in art deco style.

There is a Lloyds TSB bank next door to the cinema (didn’t notice it when I got these, was just looking at the former cinema).
