The Electric in Birmingham is the UKs oldest working cinema. It screened its first film on 27th December 1909, and has been providing various forms of entertainment to the public ever since.
It has been brought from a state of dereliction to one of the most adored cinemas in the country. Now a fully-functioning picture house and a licenced bar, the establishment is rich in history and prided by the city.
We were granted the opportunity to take an inside look at the venue with the man who made The Electric what it is today, and find out just why it matters so much that places like this are kept alive.
