Meet at Victoria Square | 10:30 - 12:00

Eight years on from its debut outing at Flatpack 2011, this enduringly popular ramble through Birmingham's celluloid past returns in a new iteration.

At the peak of filmgoing during the 1940s the city boasted over 100 picturehouses, and Ben Waddington (Still Walking) plots a path through the city centre pointing out some of the architectural remnants of this boom, now half-hidden behind the facade of a shisha lounge, an amusement arcade or a car park. For this specially extended edition, Ben concludes the walk with the newly discovered lost Walk of Stars. Meet by the water-free water feature in the centre of Victoria Square.
