Brilliant Independent Cinemas In Birmingham To Catch A Film In Comfort

Films come to life in these amazing cinemas.

Birmingham is home to a number of independent cinemas and we think they’re all fantastic. There were four but sadly The Electric has been forced to close during the pandemic and won’t be re-opening. However, the three remaining independent cinemas are all amazing places to catch a flick in comfy seats and enjoy our newfound, post-lockdown freedoms.

Like many great independent cinemas, Mockingbird has nailed the culinary side of going to the pictures. This spot offers fine cuisine when you head into their vaults. From popcorn to popcorn chicken to vegan “(not) meatballs”, Mockingbird will ensure you enjoy the movie well-fed. New films and the classics are shown at its Custard Factory based screens – and, if that wasn’t enough, 2020 has brought with it Mockingbird Saturday brunches. Enjoy some pancakes, bottomless beverages and some throwback films to kick off your weekends.
