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!

you go you buy your ticket and find that this place is a total cinema experience run by people not corporations and they choose what to show not show what they are told or even what is trendy . If you want to see something interesting or different but don't want to stay at home then go out take friends... More

Went to watch Jurassic World with friends. First time visit. It is such a pleasant environment and the staff are friendly. There is a bar in the reception area as you walk in and the staff are very friendly. Drinks and snacks are available to enjoy whilst watching the movie. The atmosphere is nice and it seems the original features... More

We booked a sofa for our viewing. It's very relaxing to sit and watch a film whilst sipping on a gin & tonic and choice of food snacks. My only complaint would be other visitors using phones to order during the film screening. But, a pleasant experience all round - will be venturing back there soon.
