3. The Electric
Cinematic history has long been a part of Birmingham in the form of the “Oldest working cinema in the UK”. The Electric is a small two screen building with a simple façade that brings the old-world charm back to a night out at the movies.
A tiny entrance, a bar that serves drinks in non-plastic glasses, and tickets that resemble vintage stubs, if you are looking to add that little extra to your film watching experience then The Electric is the place to go.
For a little more comfort, the cinema has special comfortable couches that let you watch your favourite film in the lap of luxury. In addition to that, The Electric also hosts annual events such as the Shock and Gore movie festival which have become iconic in their own rights.
