VENUE: The Electric Cinema – Screen 2

47-49 Station St,
Birmingham
B5 4DY

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.

Unfortunately there is no wheelchair access to Screen Two, on the first floor.

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!

Celebrating screendance in all its manifestations, we’ve collaborated with local filmmaker Sima Gonsai to co-curate […]
