“Very civilised movie experience”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Love the atmosphere in this old cinema. Its full of people who love film and know how to behave in a cinema. Sadly I've not been for a while but hope to visit again soon.

“Cosy”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Been a while since my last visit but the memory is still there. Have always booked a leather sofa at the back, feels great. The only draw back is the toilets which flood due to the water table in Birmingham

Reviewed August 23, 2012

what is their to dislike or complain about? Perfect in every detail. Except for the drive home. Why don't they provide a taxi?

“A trip back in time!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Traditional old cinema. First ever cinema in Birmingham I believe but may be wrong! Has been kept to its original outlay. An adults cinema.

“A great alternative to Cineworld!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Had a lovely time at the Electric Cinema.... We got comfortable leather sofas, a good glass of wine and nibbles during the film. It's been really well maintained and the service was very good too
