See visually extravagant drama 1917 at the only Birmingham cinema dating back to WWI still showing films today.

At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield and Blake are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers, Blake’s own brother among them.

Sam Mendes: '1917 was a story that needed to play out in real-time, allowing audiences to experience the same sense of growing dread as the film's heroes do in their race against the clock'.
