The Electric Cinema

The Electric Cinema at Station Street in Birmingham is an apt venue for any classic film, but it proved to be the ideal venue for the recent screening of G.W. Pabst’s silent 1929 classic Pandora’s Box. It is the oldest working cinema in the country.

Highly recommended by many national publications and by film critic Mark Kermode, The Electric Cinema has indeed a reputation to live up to.

As soon as you enter, you are jettisoned back in time by about a century. Judging from the old monochrome photographs, the current internal structure looks almost identical to the original picture-house. Even the traditional box office window located by the right of the entrance is still there.The-Electric-Birmingham
