TITANIC has been named Birmingham’s favourite ever 90s film, new national research has revealed.

The study, conducted by Showcase Cinemas, saw the James Cameron epic pick up 14 per cent of the vote, edging out The Shawshank Redemption (nine per cent) and The Lion King (nine per cent).

On a national level, 1990s hit The Shawshank Redemption (16 per cent) has been crowned the UK’s favourite movie of all time, beating out competition from James Cameron’s epic Titanic (15 per cent) and 70s cultural phenomenon Star Wars (14 per cent).

The survey, carried out to celebrate Showcase’s Flashback film series, also revealed the nation’s top 10 favourite movies from the 1990s.
