VENUE: The Electric Cinema – Screen 1

Birmingham

Established in 1909, the Electric was the first cinema in Birmingham and is today the oldest working cinema in the UK. The Electric provides a unique setting for film viewing: choose a film from the great variety on offer and sit back to enjoy with handmade cakes, coffee, or something a bit stronger, from the art deco bar.

Screen one and ground floor are wheelchair accessible. (Venue will provide ramp for wheelchair access up the main steps)

Did You Know… The Electric has gone by many other names, including: Tivoli, Tatler News Theatre and Jacey Cartoon Theatre. At one point it was even an amusement arcade!
