The Electric Cinema

47 Station Street Birmingham B5 4DY

Like every city in the UK, Birmingham has a multitude of multiplexes peddling over-hyped blockbusters and overpriced popcorn. However, if you hate the homogenous multiplex experience, the Electric Cinema may just be the big-screen sanctuary you've been looking for. Opened in 1909, this Art Deco cinema – the country’s oldest, no less – boasts a diverse programming schedule that runs the gamut from silent movies to independent cult classics to some of Hollywood’s more cerebral efforts. Further bolstering its appeal for serious cinephiles is the Electric’s commitment to film education, with the bijou cinema hosting regular tours and talks.
