The Electric


Behind the screens

18th May 2018

Our popular 'Behind The Screens' tours are back, giving you the chance to delve into The Electric Cinema's long and tumultuous history.

Discover what part it played during World War II and take a look at the projection rooms and the building's basement, featuring all kinds of cinematic paraphernalia collected from well over 100 years of existence.

The tour begins with an on screen presentation in Screen 1 taking you through the building's different incarnations and owners, followed by a guided tour of the cinema that includes the projection booth, the basement and the proscenium arch behind Screen 1.
