Situated near Birmingham new street. Plenty of parking located around the area. The postcode they gave us for parking didn't seem to take us to the place, so we was walking and looking around aimlessly for it and decided on just going into any old one. Apparently it's opposite the Victoria pub. The snacks and drinks aren't too expensive either,... More

A truly enjoyable cinema visit. Try to book a sofa for two if you can and be sure to try the unexpected range of snacks on offer and served at your sofa. My expectations of the bottle of wine we ordered were low, but it was fab and served in a traditional ice bucket with real glasses. Don't despair if... More

I love this place and thought it about time I share my views on here. Like others I don't enjoy the multiplex experience but The Electic is cinema going as it should be. Apart from the eclectic selection of films they show the place itself is a delight with friendly staff who genuinely seem to enjoy their work. The selection... More

A must visit for any film fan, The Electric Cinema has renewed my interest in seeing films. Disheartened by the multiplex experience with mobile phones, ill manners and eye watering prices having reduced me to waiting for the DVD, The Electric is a sanctuary for those that want to see good films in good company. The film selections, from classics... More

Our first visit to the Electric Cinema and we were delighted by the warm welcome by the staff. everything was explained in regards to ordering drinks via text. Fantastic selection of nibbles and no sticky popcorn in sight!!!! It was a pleasant evening with friends in a relaxed environment. Already planning our next visit.

I have been meaning to visit this cinema for ages and we made an effort to have a date night there tonight to see ant man. WOW!!! Not sure there is anything else to say. We chose a sofa - Lloyd and it was so comfy. We had tea and cake to start but half way through the film felt... More

This cinema reminded me of my days as a young child.. Red carpet..Red seats. . Although I went VIP had the leather sofas..Had a tab running text the number and drinks get sent up to you.. Funky place..thought the food and snack prices were a bit overpriced.. Overall experience is fantastic. .

What is not to love about this cinema, the great selection of films both mainstream and art house films are on offer. You can select sofas to watch your films from and you're given a number to use to text the bar to bring you drinks/snacks. It's a film lovers dream. Not to be missed if you're in Birmingham!
