Stan and Ollie stars Steve Coogan and John C Reilly as Laurel and Hardy, the world's most famous comedy duo, attempting to reignite their film careers embarking on what becomes their swan song - a gruelling theatre tour of post-war Britain.

Scenes from the film were shot on Station Street at the neighbouring Old Rep Theatre and during the Laurel and Hardy's post-war theatre tours the Electric Cinema would have been in full swing. The duo themselves actually played the Hippodrome many times and like most performers of the day, it's likely that the duo visited us during their time in Birmingham to catch up on the latest news and short movies. There's really no better venue to soak up the nostalgic atmosphere and see this wonderful new film!
