Even though the menu is from across Asia, it is the Japanese and the dumpling menu that just needs to be eaten. We tried the 'Shitake Maki' and loved how the Sweet Potato and the Cucumber came together with the shitake. Between the 'Hamachi New York Dragon Sushi Roll' and the 'Edamame California', the sushi game at You MEE is a strong and absolute value for money. We loved the 'BBC' – beans, bokchoy and chestnut, the beetroot and cheese as well as the 'Chicken Poached Dumpling' and by the end of eating just sushi and dumpling were absolutely bursting. We tried the invincible 'Tantan Ramen' and absolutely loved it and then finished our meal with a 'Caramel Super Shake'.
I do understand why some people enjoy this - they get caught up in the 'oldest cinema in the multi-verse' hype and get over-excited about being waited on, but it just didn't work for me and the friends I went with. the BIG problem is that, for us, the almost constant ebb and flow of people being supplied with food / drink was intrusive and spoilt our viewing of the film itself. It seems that regulars here view it as a bit of a social experience where background chat is 100% acceptable - the noisiest audience I've ever sat in at a cinema. Constant use of mobile phones as well! Then there's the smell - olfactory senses overwhelmed by the acrid whiff of stale alcohol - please clean those carpets more regularly! We won't be back, I'm afraid.
Officially the oldest continually working cinema in the U.K., having been established in 1909, it was very close to our hotel in Birmingham, so clearly was on our list when staying in the area. There are some impressive Art Deco features and the most amazing ante room before entering the upper screen 2 where our film was being shown. Regular seating centrally in the auditorium plus special settee or lounger seating at front and rear. A good experience, with shorter than average pre showing advertisements and trailers. We simply sat in the regular seats that were very comfortable with good sight lines
Has plenty of character to the place only visit occasionally due to having an unlimited card but nice to come for some smaller releases and have a change of scenery good selection of food and drink to.
The Electric is the oldest working cinema in the UK and it still retains it's fantastic Art Deco charm. It's a perfect date spot as it has many special screenings of classic and cult movies as well as blockbusters and indies from the present day. You can pay a little extra to hire a sofa and drinks, cakes and alcoholic beverages can be ordered by text to your table.The Electric is a true gem of Birmingham and I'd recommend it to any visitor.
A lovely, civilised cinema experience. Part of the beauty of this cinema is its absence of buckets of sticky popcorn, and its sensible sound level. (When we go to standard cinemas we have taken to using earplugs, especially for the adverts and trailers! ) Although it costs a little more, it’s worth trying The Electric if you haven’t already.
