Cinemas around Edgbaston

ODEON Luxe - Birmingham Broadway Plaza

220 Ladywood Middleway, Birmingham B16 8LP, UK – 0333 014 4501

A great cinema recently refurbished to the LUXE edition. The reclining seats are very comfortable and it's hard to imagine watching a film without these seats. They're spacious, clean and definitely worth the extra ticket price. For ideal viewing, I would recommend sitting in the middle for optimum experience, as the higher seats make the screen look small. You need to sit in the row underneath the mid walkway. The entrance to the cinema is superbly renovated with on Costa coffee on site. The underground parking is secure with 3 hour free parking. The entrance is tight so slightly difficult when parking your Rolls Royce Phantom.

Love the new layout. The automated ticketing area is challenging at first glance. For those not at ease with self-service checkins/outs, there are plenty helpful staff eager to assist. The foyer is spacious and have plenty seated areas for you to have a coffee or grab something to eat before of after your movie. A good place for children to unwind and have fun during the summer break.

Odeon Cinema Birmingham

139 New St, Birmingham B2 4NU, UK – 0333 014 4501

enjoyed the movie and service was good. staff is very friendly and helpful. toilets were clean. one thing i didn't like was in the cinema room the screen is too low so when you're sitting further up the seats in front tend to cover the lower half of the screen so we struggled to watch the movie comfortably. Also the lights stayed on throughout the movie which was annoying too

Good service from their staffs even though they are only two serving. But had to wait for a long time just to watch movie. Suppose start at 12 but didn't start till 12.40pm. what a long wait and kids had finished popcorn and drink. Would love them to start within 15 mib if the showing time.

Cineworld

181 Broad St, Birmingham B15 1DA, UK – 0330 333 4444

Very nice cinema. Has a few different varieties of snacks to choose from.. from your hot dogs to nachos and candy to ice cream.. Very nice and freshly served. Cinemas are comfortable and plenty toilets around in case required. There's is also a decent parking close by so that's not a issue. Situated in the centre of the entertainment pay of town so you can always hit the club's or go for a nice meal after your movies.. great experience all round!

After 2 years I've come back to the cinema refurbished. Looks futuristic in the foyer. Don't get there too early as I found it you are too early with your ticket they won't let you in, so I had to wait another 20 to 30 minutes (I'm always early).

Theatres for Edgbaston

The Crescent Theatre

Sheepcote St, Birmingham B16 8AE, UK – 0121 643 5858

Lovely little theatre in the heart of city centre. Have had the pleasure of both performing and watching shows here. Always friendly and welcoming staff with drink knowledge. Reasonable drink prices which is always good to have as well. I always look forward to the next show that comes along. Will be coming back soon.

This is a hidden gem t hats probably missed by visitors from outside the local area but it's well worth finding if you're in the area. The people who make it great have heart and a true love of theatre, dance, and music. The acoustics are fabulous.

New Alexandra Theatre

Suffolk Street Queensway, Birmingham B5 4DS, UK – 0844 871 3011

Just watched Summer Holiday Show tonight. Ray Quinn, Bobby Crush & the whole cast were amazing! It was high energy, great songs & fun - a real feel good show! Thanks to you all for such a great night out. Has my vote for best show of the year!! 🤩

Great theatre but no lift. Slightly odd layout means you have to use stairs to access the dress circle AND STALLS. For stalls you go up to top floor then down again. On my last visit I did see a disabled entrance but you have to buzz and it is only manned 30 mins before the show starts. Best to call or visit to ask about disabled access. Depending on production the sound can be a bit iffy. They often have the bass too high so you can't hear the lyrics but can feel vibration in the floor. However at some productions the sound is fine so maybe the production company is at fault. Last went to see Summer Holiday. For the first song the bass was too high but after that it was great. They must have adjusted the sound.

The Old Rep Theatre

45 Station St, Birmingham B5 4DY, UK – 0121 359 9444

A great little Theatre in the centre of Birmingham. Staff are very friendly, helpful and seem very keen. A nice layout of bar with tables and chairs and refreshments and snacks are plenty, the prices are so cheap especially being in a city. Hard to find anything negative to say other than maybe the seats and decor inside are very dated. They are appealing for money though as they did did a message from stage where you can buy raffle tickets so maybe this is what they need it for. It's a good place to go with a variety of shows and we will be back.

We've been to see two shows in the last month and my children loved them, They especially enjoyed the leaping frog workshop after the show. We saw more of the theatre and the kids made their own shadow puppets and went up on stage. The seating is great for the kids as they can clearly see the stage from any seat without heads getting in their way.
