Cinemas in Birmingham: things to know before you go

Not sure what to see on your cinematic adventure or looking for a new movie experience? Here are some of the important things you need to know about cinema in Birmingham before you check the listings near you:

What’s the best cinema in Birmingham?

Birmingham has plenty of different cinemas to choose from when you’re planning an evening out. There are nearly 30 cinemas across the city where you can catch the latest big-name movies or settle in to watch independent under-the-radar films. Choosing the best cinema in town will boil down to what you want to see and what setting you want to enjoy your movie in.

A favourite of Groupon users with oh-so-nearly five stars is The Mockingbird Cinema and Kitchen, combining two locals’ favourites – Birmingham’s amazing food scene, and the chance to sit down in front of one of your favourite films while you eat.

Tucked away in the Custard Factory Complex, The Mockingbird serves up every film with fusion cuisine and classic pub food. They show everything from the latest mega hits to time-honoured classics like The Goonies. As much as you’re showing up for the film, though, you’re showing up for the experience too. Always a great bet for some of the best cinema deals in Birmingham. Why not combine your cinema visit with a booking at one of the city’s best restaurants too for the perfect date night?

Do any film stars come from Birmingham?

Movie stars who hail from Birmingham include:

· Beryl Ivory/Baxter

· Margaret Leighton

· Raymond Huntley

· Alan Napier (who played Alfred in the 1960s Batman TV series)

· Pauline Grant

Have many films been shot in Birmingham?

It may not quite have the glamorous Hollywood atmosphere, but you’d be surprised by some of the big name films that have been shot in Birmingham, and one in particular is testament to the city’s part in the history of film.

  • Kingsman: The Secret Service used the city heavily for some of its action scenes when made back in 2015. The financial district was the site of several high-octane sequences, including some impressive stunts involving a high-speed car chase.
  • Many a zombie fan has wondered what it would be like for their city to be overrun by the walking dead, and in June and July 2015 Brummies got a taste of just that when The Girl With all the Gifts came to town. The cast (which included Glenn Close and Gemma Arterton) and crew were spotted all over town, as parts of the city were turned into a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
  • Ready Player One brought perhaps the highest-profile shoot to Birmingham. Steven Spielberg used the city to double up for parts of a dystopian future America, filming in the Jewellery Quarter, Digbeth and under Spaghetti Junction.
  • One that’s particularly dear to the hearts of cinema lovers in Birmingham was The Last Projectionist. A documentary about the history of film projection, it heavily featured the Electric Cinema, Britain’s oldest working cinema. No coincidence that it’s owned by the film’s director, Tom Lawes!

Does Birmingham have any big film events?

Yes. Every year, the world of cinema descends on Birmingham for a celebration of all things film related and some of the best nights out in the city. The Birmingham Film Festival includes screenings, events and glitzy awards ceremonies rewarding the best short films, documentaries, screenplays and music videos.
