The Electric


In memory of Dr. Clifford Shaw (1919 - 2015)

5th Jan 2016

We recently became aware that a time honoured friend of the cinema, Dr Clifford Shaw, sadly passed away last October, aged 96. He had worked tirelessly to help establish Birmingham’s Electric as the oldest working cinema in the U.K.

Between 1995 and 2015 we received numerous hand typed letters from Dr Shaw, and we are hugely grateful for his attention and research involving the cinema’s unique history.

We would like to send our sincere condolences to the Shaw family. Dr Shaw was a great man who had a tremendous devotion to film. He will be deeply missed by many.
