We love the Electric cinema. Very close to New St Station so convenient for train users. It is the old fashioned cinema of your childhood but with a difference. You can book a sofa in most of the Screen rooms and are then eligible for butler service. The snacks are lovely, not the usual multiplex fare. Not a lot of younger people so no phone lights or loud talking to put you off the movie. So worth a visit.

This theatre, one of the oldest in the UK is charming and such a delight to visit. It doesn't get the younger traffic of mobile phone users who think it's fine to chat during the movie. In fact you feel like you've gone back in time. They have sofas, drinks and olives at your seat along side other choices, and the only cinema ever where I left early for personal reasons and I was asked if everything was okay with the movie. Brilliant. I will not watch a movie anywhere else in Birmingham.

Comfortable seats. Excellent service for food and drinks. A little bit different than a normal cinema.

Love the electric and always make a point off going there rather than faceless corporate cinemas, I love the individual touches , the range of films, seats are comfortable and cake is always good
