Electric cinema in Birmingham celebrates centenary


The Electric cinema in Birmingham opened for business in the days of silent movies. These days it is more likely to be screening the latest Hollywood blockbuster than Buster Keaton.

It celebrates its 100th anniversary this week - which makes it the oldest working cinema in the UK.

Bob Walker reports.
