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.

A wonderful place to spend an evening - the cinema has a small bar which served movie themed cocktails - homemade cakes, dishes of sweets etc - you may take your drinks in to the theatre. We had front row armchair seats with foot stools, extremely comfortable but they also have a sofa section at the back of the theatre... More

My favourite place in Birmingham. A total throwback to older times where responsible adults were trusted to enjoy a cocktail with their film and real food was served. If this place were to be shut down I'd chain myself to the doors!

We got tickets to the electric as part or a deal with bloc hotel on good Friday. Very cool, great little bar and you can get a glass of beer or cocktail to take inside the screen with nibbles. Full of normal folk not spotty youths.

Fantastic, quirky, friendly, authentic. There may be a pretender or two on the market in town these days (hello Everyman), but there is literally nowhere like the Electric.

Just returned from a night out at the Electric Cinema. What a great experience. We were given a voucher as a Christmas present which included wine and an upgrade on seating. So comfortable and just like being at home. We ordered our nibbles and drinks by text only to receive them minutes later without moving an inch. A great concept... More

I love being able to settle down on a sofa with waitress service and nibble on tasty nibbles and drink delicious cocktails. They have some great special screenings sometimes with themed food and drinks or snacks. Ages ago I lost a treasured earring here and not only did they find it but they went looking for it after I rang... More
