Calling all film enthusiasts! We have a summer of cinema that you won’t want to miss.
As normality begins to return, we are super excited to announce a new partnership with our friends at Mockingbird Cinema. After viewing our newly refurbished Auditorium, Mockingbird were keen to get on board with Millennium Point, to use our giant screen for “Big Screen Film Season”.
Who are the Mockingbird?
Since 2015, the fully-independent Mockingbird Cinema has been entertaining cinema fans with its mix of new and classic film screenings at its nearby Digbeth venue – a restored Victorian Factory. They have recently announced its intention to expand with a second screen opening later in the year. More information can be found here.
What films are being shown?
Film enthusiasts you will not be disappointed, with a collection of the newest blockbusters and a collection of much-loved classics, hitting the big screen in Eastside this summer.
To make things better you haven’t got long to wait, with the first screening taking place on Thursday 29th July. Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller Black Widow, one of 2021’s biggest cinema releases is the first movie to be shown, featuring Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh. To conclude the opening day, we also have the 1980s classic The Lost Boys, a teen comedy horror film starring Corey Haim and Keifer Sutherland.
As we continue throughout the summer we have some great screenings you won’t want to miss including the newly released In The Heights, the award winning The greatest Showman, 1970s horror Jaws and the original Jurassic Park.

On Saturday 14th August join us for a day of Hobbits and Wizards as we celebrate J.R.R Tolkien’s birthday by showing the Oscar winning fantasy epic, Lord of the Rings series back-to-back. The series will be screened with interval breaks between each film, where you can purchase refreshments from our fully licensed bar.

Mockingbird owners, James Brown, Alper Dervish and Lee Nabbs said: “It has been a long-time ambition to screen films at Millennium Point as we all have fond memories of the original IMAX cinema. It has been a challenging year for the industry and as we reopen we are very excited to bring cinema back to this venue and with our diverse programming, we look forward to sharing the big screen with both new and existing customers”.
