This article is about the cinema on 2nd Avenue North downtown. For the cinema on 18th Street South in Homewood, see Homewood Theatre (cinema).

The Royal Theatre was a small cinema located at 2014-2016 2nd Avenue North from the 1920s to 1951.

Through its life, the Royal specialized in screening "B" grade Westerns. Its role was rendered obsolete by the emergence of television in the Birmingham market.

After the theater closed, the building was converted into a Morrison's Cafeteria, and later demolished for construction of Birmingham Parking Authority Deck 6.
