The lease on The Electric Cinema is up for auction on March 31st. I'm having a bit of a whip round to make an offer, so if you want to make a donation then just leave a comment with the amount.

On a serious note, the cinema was a Birmingham institution and I really hope that someone who wants to carry on running is as cinema wins the auction. The cake was legendary, the seats smelled of wee, the toilets were foul, but the film programme was diverse and amazing, and the staff are great people.
