If you are coming to stay with us at the Rotunda take a look at what's showing at The Electric Cinema. It's the most beautiful little cinema tucked around the back of New Street train station.
The Electric has two screens with a great mix of the latest films and more left-field choices. The programme for the next two weeks includes Brief Encounter, Les Mis, Zero Dark Thirty, Hitchcock, Rocky Horror, Rocky, Antiviral, The Birds, Cirque de Soleil and Flight!
The Electric is fully licenced, so you can enjoy a drink during the film and, if you get in early, you can book a VIP sofa and order waiter service by text.
You can take an online tour here. We think that it's worth a visit for the gorgeous interior alone.
