This week the Friday photo is the window of the old Kingsway Picture House – Cinema in Kings Heath. The Picture house is typical of the style built in the 1920s it later became a Bingo Hall from the 1980s. In 2011 a fire spread throughout the abandoned building leaving a derelict structure which is visible from the high street. The view from the window is looking across to the shops opposite on Kings Heath high street onĀ  the Alcester Rd.

    I go passed that building on the way to work. It such a shame a beautiful building like that is left in ruin. I do love the twist by taking the picture inside though. Almost feels like something is hiding in there, a little eerie I think.
