Wonderland: Birmingham’s Cinema Stories

In 2022, an exhibition at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery explored how cinema has shaped the streets, social lives and dreams of Brummies over the past 125 years.

The exhibition is now closed, but you can find a virtual tour of the show below. It’s best viewed by going into fullscreen – press play, and click the fullscreen button in the bottom right corner. You can move around the model by clicking on the white circles along the floor, or by clicking through the labels one by one. Labels are represented by coloured circles.

“A love letter to cinema in Birmingham and beautifully researched and presented.”

This film was filmed and edited by Brian Harley.

“It’s a must-see for fans of cinema and local history; there’s so much that I just wasn’t aware of!”
