was a neighbourhood theater, with a 15-by-20ft screen.

 

It was a 21-day house,

meaning movies arrived 21 days

after opening downtown

Sam Bishop, The Electric, Birmingham

 

‘The biggest challenge with projectionists

is that they work in near total darkness,’

says Nicholson.

 

‘I [had to] set up lights

to simulate the ambience of the projection room.

The Electric is Britain’s oldest working cinema.’
