Topic: It's a wonderful Life - The Electric Birmingham

I went to the Electric in Brum last night to watch Frank Capara's classic.

The air conditioning must have been to high as my eyes kept watering!

The Electric was ace though - supposedly Britain's oldest working cinema - 1909.

Big sofa style chairs, foot rests and some cracking ales and nibbles (giant pretzels and jalapeno humous).  It was like watching it at home but on a giant screen.

Will be going back.

My mate goes there all the time, and loves, It's a Beautiful Life, he was probably there.

He's booked the whole place out for his 50th, got DJs playing there and is showing Flash Gordon..

Good film. Best old films I’ve seen in a cinema are Dr Zivagho and Lawrence Of Arabia. I wish they put more on. Billy Liar on the IMAX ????
