Please log in to see the event host details here



This is an informal opportunity for film lovers to get together each month at Birmingham’s prime multiplex cinema.

Most of the films have screenings starting between 5.45 & 6.30pm, so we will meet Sean, the coordinator in the Foyer and decide which film to see. We expect that most people will join the coordinator at a film that they recommend; however, you can see a different film if you wish and we can split into smaller groups so no one needs to sit alone. Once we have bought our tickets we have access to the cafe bar upstairs which we will use as our “base” before and after the film(s).


Après Film: After the films, we can enjoy discussing what we have seen as a group of “Spice Critics”.


Coordinator: Sean Kavanagh will meet you all. If you are logged into our website you will see the relevant phone number in the “host” box above.

Note: Sean will turn his phone off when he’s in the theatre but everyone meets in the cinema bar afterwards when he will pick up any text/email messages sent to me by late attendees. If you are late and don't get a response then pick a film and join us in the bar afterwards.

Parking: If you park in the car park next door (Euro Car Parks, Bishopsgate Street), and present your ticket at the box office, you get up to 3 hours parking free.


Driving Directions:

From the city centre; follow signs for broad Street, near canal. From junction 6 of the M6 follow the Aston Expressway through Queensway. Turn right at McDonalds and the cinema is located on the five ways roundabout

Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the
planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber's antique shop, and embarks upon a series of
odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it's up to Paddington and the
Browns to unmask the thief.

Cineworld bar afterwards to chat. If we decide on a late starting film then we
visit the upstairs bar beforehand to chat as well.
