Cinemas around Birmingham

Odeon Cinema Birmingham

139 New St, Birmingham B2 4NU, UK – 0333 014 4501

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

Great cinema in the middle of town with good screens and friendly staff that are very engaging. The cinema is very clean and the food portions are very big. However the toilets were very badly maintained and not pleasant.


181 Broad St, Birmingham B15 1DA, UK – 0330 333 4444

Very nice cinema. Has a few different varieties of snacks to choose from.. from your hot dogs to nachos and candy to ice cream.. Very nice and freshly served. Cinemas are comfortable and plenty toilets around in case required. There's is also a decent parking close by so that's not a issue. Situated in the centre of the entertainment pay of town so you can always hit the club's or go for a nice meal after your movies.. great experience all round!

I always love the experience at Cineworld. They have ticket smart counters for on spot booking or you can book online. They've even started 4Dx a few months ago. I would recommend buying the 20£ unlimited movie card it's more convenient and a better offer. But only if you watch more than 3 movies in a month.

The Electric Cinema

47-49 Station St, Birmingham B5 4DY, UK – 0121 643 7879

Went for a friend's wedding, amazing experience. Really quirky but worked so well for the couple. Need to go when it's just a normal cinema now to complete the set

The cinema has the old school charm of a historic movie house, but actually the seats are a bit narrow and uncomfortable. My wife who has bad knees had difficulty getting up out of the seats. There is a decent bar and the art deco details are an interesting change from the normal cinema vibe.

Theatres for Birmingham

The Crescent Theatre

Sheepcote St, Birmingham B16 8AE, UK – 0121 643 5858

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.

New Alexandra Theatre

Suffolk Street Queensway, Birmingham B5 4DS, UK – 0844 871 3011

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.

The Mockingbird Cinema and Kitchen

Mockingbird House, The Custard Factory, Gibb St, Birmingham B9 4AA, UK – 0121 224 7456

Single screen cinema with a casual restaurant as an added bonus. Prices for cinema are half the price of the big multi screen places. Restaurant has a small menu focusing on chicken and burgers. Food is delicious and well presented at a reasonable price. Staff friendly and approachable. Worth a visit just for the food

Great little cinema with a resident bar/food place. I was quite surprised to find this little gem online with some really cheap movie tickets for new releases. Now for the drinks, there is a good selection of alchoholic and none ones, but I have not tried the food so I cannot comment. The front house guy for the cinema was very friendly, props to him!
