Birmingham’s best cinemas 

Though hiring out a cinema in Birmingham seems like a dream reserved for movie moguls and cinephile celebrities, the city of a thousand trades has plenty of private hire screens for your viewing pleasure. 

From big-name franchises to small independent cinemas, these venues can make your presentation worthy of a red carpet. 

A Birmingham cinema for those who like history – Electric Cinema 

Few film theatres can claim to be the UK’s oldest working cinema – in fact, only one can. The Electric cinema in Southside, Birmingham, was established in 1909 and has survived various iterations, but still proudly puts on performances to this date. 

Extensive renovations have brought the Art Deco space back to its original luxury, and the cinema boasts two fully licensed screening rooms that you can hire out for a screening, conference or presentation. Screen One has a capacity for 104 guests, whilst the smaller Screen Two can accommodate 76 comfortably.

H2: Birmingham’s best fully independent cinema: Mockingbird Cinema 

Beats. Beers. Films. That’s the not-quite alliterative trio of words adorning the backlit marque above the entrance. True to the advert, Mockingbird Cinema allows you to enjoy a range of well-prepared drinks whilst viewing films past and present. 

With two screens and two bars, all of which can be hired, Mockingbird Cinema has plenty of options for your private cinema event. Just head over to the Custard Factory in the famous Digbeth area of the city, and soon you could be reclining with a beer about to watch your own private picture show. Nice. 

Birmingham cinema Cineworld Broad StreetBirmingham cinema Cineworld Broad Street

Birmingham’s flagship Cineworld does not do things in half measures. 12 phenomenal screens, the latest in AV equipment and more popcorn than you can… pop? You get the idea. 

The 8K IMAX display will make your presentation absolutely shine, and the impressive theatre space has the capacity to blow the socks off 364 guests. Cineworld is not small, it is not boutique and it is not subtle, and that’s exactly why we love it. 

Through HeadBox you can hire out three separate screens, alongside the modern cinema bar

H2: A Birmingham cinema aimed at delivering your corporate presentation: Vue Birmingham

Corporate presentations can be a nail-biting affair. Your colleagues, competitors and clients watching, attention rapt on the screen. You, questioning the thought process behind choosing three similar shades of blue for the pie chart scheme. 

Vue Birmingham circumvents these hiccups by providing time-tested audio-visual technology auditorium-style plush leather seating and a mezzanine perfect for networking and catering. 

What does this mean? It means that you and 530 guests can hear and see the presentation in perfect clarity, relax in comfortable seating and get a bite to eat at the end. Now that’s a presentation.
