Birmingham’s Flatpack Festival present Wonderland, a unique heritage project telling the film-going story of Birmingham – from fairground film shows to the birth of the Odeon, from South Asian picturehouses to the multiplex era.

Witha team of partners and volunteers, Flatpack Festival will explore how cinema has shaped the streets, social lives and dreams of Brummies over the past century, leading to a programme of exhibitions and special events in summer 2022.

Members of the public are encouraged to share their cinema story by emailing
