A great cinema recently refurbished to the LUXE edition. The reclining seats are very comfortable and it's hard to imagine watching a film without these seats. They're spacious, clean and definitely worth the extra ticket price. For ideal viewing, I would recommend sitting in the middle for optimum experience, as the higher seats make the screen look small. You need to sit in the row underneath the mid walkway. The entrance to the cinema is superbly renovated with on Costa coffee on site. The underground parking is secure with 3 hour free parking. The entrance is tight so slightly difficult when parking your Rolls Royce Phantom.
Love the new layout. The automated ticketing area is challenging at first glance. For those not at ease with self-service checkins/outs, there are plenty helpful staff eager to assist. The foyer is spacious and have plenty seated areas for you to have a coffee or grab something to eat before of after your movie. A good place for children to unwind and have fun during the summer break.

enjoyed the movie and service was good. staff is very friendly and helpful. toilets were clean. one thing i didn't like was in the cinema room the screen is too low so when you're sitting further up the seats in front tend to cover the lower half of the screen so we struggled to watch the movie comfortably. Also the lights stayed on throughout the movie which was annoying too
Good service from their staffs even though they are only two serving. But had to wait for a long time just to watch movie. Suppose start at 12 but didn't start till 12.40pm. what a long wait and kids had finished popcorn and drink. Would love them to start within 15 mib if the showing time.

The Electric Cinema is the UK's oldest working cinema and located in the center of Birmingham. This an art deco building that started life in 1909. The seats range from sofas for two to individual seat. You are also provided with a menu so that you can order food and drinks, including alcoholic drinks that is brought to you up to 10 minutes into the film you are watching. The cinema will also discount parking if you have parked in one of the local car parks. The sofa seating is ample for two people and comfortable, the atmosphere is also pleasant and the staff friendly
An excellent cinema. Ok it's a little expensive. However it's quaint and beautiful. If you want a break from the 14 screen cinema's then this is the place to visit. It's also across the road from the local train station and so there's a reason to leave your car at home and treat yourself to a night out at the flicks. It's also near a lot of night life and restaurants too. Go on have some fun and chill!

Lovely little theatre in the heart of city centre. Have had the pleasure of both performing and watching shows here. Always friendly and welcoming staff with drink knowledge. Reasonable drink prices which is always good to have as well. I always look forward to the next show that comes along. Will be coming back soon.
This is a hidden gem t hats probably missed by visitors from outside the local area but it's well worth finding if you're in the area. The people who make it great have heart and a true love of theatre, dance, and music. The acoustics are fabulous.

Just watched Summer Holiday Show tonight. Ray Quinn, Bobby Crush & the whole cast were amazing! It was high energy, great songs & fun - a real feel good show! Thanks to you all for such a great night out. Has my vote for best show of the year!! 🤩
Great theatre but no lift. Slightly odd layout means you have to use stairs to access the dress circle AND STALLS. For stalls you go up to top floor then down again. On my last visit I did see a disabled entrance but you have to buzz and it is only manned 30 mins before the show starts. Best to call or visit to ask about disabled access. Depending on production the sound can be a bit iffy. They often have the bass too high so you can't hear the lyrics but can feel vibration in the floor. However at some productions the sound is fine so maybe the production company is at fault. Last went to see Summer Holiday. For the first song the bass was too high but after that it was great. They must have adjusted the sound.

A great little Theatre in the centre of Birmingham. Staff are very friendly, helpful and seem very keen. A nice layout of bar with tables and chairs and refreshments and snacks are plenty, the prices are so cheap especially being in a city. Hard to find anything negative to say other than maybe the seats and decor inside are very dated. They are appealing for money though as they did did a message from stage where you can buy raffle tickets so maybe this is what they need it for. It's a good place to go with a variety of shows and we will be back.
We've been to see two shows in the last month and my children loved them, They especially enjoyed the leaping frog workshop after the show. We saw more of the theatre and the kids made their own shadow puppets and went up on stage. The seating is great for the kids as they can clearly see the stage from any seat without heads getting in their way.
