Cinemas Near Me: Birmingham

Updated: May 26

A last minute change of plans of what to do during my day trip from the South Coast to Birmingham (yes I know it's 174 miles!) led me to my fall-back filling-a-day in a new city with the trusted "Cinemas Near Me" trick. Leading me to find 4 "living" cinemas and 2 "lost" cinemas, plus some other film related finds en route. The trip to the film-infused exhibition at the Ikon Gallery was planned.

The Electric Cinema

These lovely cards are by

Everyman Birmingham Mailbox

Odeon Birmingham New Street

Adult World

Piccadilly Shopping Arcade (formerly Piccadilly Cinema)

The Arcadian shopping mall (formerly UCG)

The film-infused exhibtion at the Ikon Gallery was Horror in the Modernist Block, featuring the work of 20 artists exploring architectural modernism and horror.

Whilst walking through the city I spied eight of these shadow art works courtesy of Castle Fine Art.

For all your comic book and film geeky needs you must make a trip to Worlds Apart, the oldest comic book shop in England.

If you're into theatre buildings, they have a few of those too!

The Old Rep Theatre, the Hippodrome and Birmingham Rep.

There were other cinemas and theatres I could have hunted down, but I also found a massive branch of CEX, where amongst other physical media releases I picked up Arrow's Cinema of Conflict: Krzysztof Kieślowski boxset.

A good, if not quite as planned, day in Birmingham.
