This film charts the history of the Electric cinema in Birmingham and the end of 35mm in cinemas.the Electric started life in 1911 and then became in turns a news theatre,sex cinema,art house and now a rather posh cinema.We hear of the experiences of customers ,staff and operators.one old lady tells of her experiences when visiting the cinema in 1918.We also get to see various other cinemas of similar vintage,including my own local ,the Phoenix in East Finchley.The decline of 35mm film is charted.It now looks as if 2013 may be the last year when film is shown in remaining cinemas.As someone who has owned 8,9.5 and 16mm projectors,i have always enjoyed using projectors.However we must now realise that progress has overtaken film and that digital is the way of the future.An absorbing film which will be of great interest to anyone with a passion for cinema.
