Screen 1 at The Electric Cinema

About this space

Established in 1909, The Electric is the UK's oldest working cinema. Located in the heart of the West Midlands we are neighboring Birmingham new Street Station for great transport links in and out of the city.

Our spacious main auditorium, Screen One is the larger of our two rooms and is located on the ground floor. The back of the room is fitted with 24 luxury sofas seats designed with a living-room so it’ll feel like your watching from the comfort of your own home.

Whether it’s a corporate event, birthday ​celebration​, hen or stag​ party​, or just a fun evening out we are able to cater to your needs. The projector provides a unique opportunity to make an unforgettable impression on your guests. We can display presentations, business logos, or a slide show of photos to create the perfect back drop to your event.

The art deco glamour of The Electric Cinema provides the most romantic setting for your wedding. With raked seating and a central aisle the main theatre on the ground floor lends itself perfectly to marriage ceremonies.

With all private hires there are options for a wide selection of catering, from snacks and treats on arrival to canapés, buffets and waiter service. With our extensive bar we can even design a cocktail menu to suit the theme of your event.
