Mad To Be Normal is the story of controversial Scottish psychiatrist R.D. Laing (played by David Tennant) and the infamous anti-psychiatry experiment he ran at Kingsley Hall – a medication-free sanctuary which made headlines around the world.
During the 1960s and 1970s, Laing was an international celebrity. In Santa Monica, 4,000 people turned out to see him perform a lecture.
His books topped student reading lists the world over, as his language excited and enthralled them – ‘a child born today stands a 10 times greater chance of being admitted to a mental hospital than to a university… perhaps it is our very way of educating them that is driving them mad.’
See ‘Made to Be Normal’ for a limited time only at The Electric Cinema, Friday 23rd to Thursday 29th June, in VIP style for less!

BLOC Hotel Birmingham
The BLOC philosophy is new to the UK. The concept is called pared-down chic and is based on ideas we’ve adapted from the best designers around the world. By injecting a little British creativity, we have been pushing the boundaries of hotel design. From the build right down to the finishes in each room, we work with cutting-edge materials and innovative thinkers whose mantra really is, small is beautiful.
The idea is to build very cleverly using the very best materials whilst still making it as cost-effective as possible. And that means we can offer our guests really chic rooms in prime city centre locations at very, very good prices.
