Star City

Star City is a family entertainment and leisure centre in Nechells, Birmingham, England. It is located near the junction of the M6 motorway and Aston Train Station northeast of Birmingham. The station is marked by a distinctive white edifice with red circular windows.


The abandoned industrial zone was re-developed in an attempt to bring back the Heartlands area. The objective was to transform Birmingham’s reputation in order to reflect contemporary realities.

The most popular attraction is the huge twenty-five-screen (formerly thirty screen) Vue cinema, which was at the time Europe’s largest theater and then became Warner Brothers Cinema. The structure was erected by Carillion of Wolverhampton, Carillion.

The venue was formally opened on July 20, 2001, to coincide with the UK premiere of The Perfect Storm, by George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg, who are both actors. For relaxation, it has 392,000 square feet (36,400 sq m). It is one of the largest entertainment centers in the United Kingdom.


The 32-lane Megabowl (now known as Tenpin’) bowling alley was established in 2003, when Star City opened, and has been operational since. It was among the biggest parks across the United States that provided leisure activities in 2003, ahead of The Printworks in Manchester and The Mailbox in Birmingham city center.

In 2007, Goals Sports Bar and Restaurant was created on the site of the former Goals Indoor Field Complex, which included 14 fields. Goals includes a Sports Bar that shows all year round sports events and games on Sky and terrestrial television.

The course was completely rebuilt in 2008. An indoor mini golf course with 36 holes that is also the country’s first. Adventure Island Mini Golf opened on June 11, 2008.

Reflections on the Community

The city of Birmingham has a high black population, and it is considered to be one of the most multicultural cities in the United Kingdom. The district was once home to Britain’s first planned industrial suburb, Vulcan Works. It is also where Britain’s first modern cremation cemetery was built and where the Capital Cinema building still stands today near Hay Mills station. The first modern crematorium was built by Birmingham Crematorium Company Ltd.

The area has recently become one of the city’s most desirable places to live, due to its proximity to parks and green spaces along with access to multiple amenities that range from shops, pubs, restaurants and cinemas. The region includes many deprived areas that are adjacent but subdue the deprivation. The area has a relatively cheap home rental market and capital appreciation compared with other parts of Birmingham such as Harborne, Edgbaston and Moseley. go here for home page or visit st andrews
