Cinemas around Manchester

ODEON Manchester Great Northern

235 Deansgate, Manchester M3 4EN, UK – 0333 014 4501

Easy parking under the northern warehouse and a lift up 3 floors and you're there. Choice of self serve ticket machine or humans then short walk to the escalator to the next floor. Take out a second mortgage for popcorn and drinks then your in. Comfy seats and great Aircon make the movie experience even better. Remember to validate your parking ticket to reduce the price to £2. 5 out of 5 stars...

Before the franchise changed, this place allowed for pop-corn refills. That's my main issue. The good thing is that it is well located, close to city centre and reachable withing walking distance. The tickets are less expensive compared to other movies and it offers student discount. The bathrooms are good.

Vue Manchester Lowry

The Lowry Outlet Mall, The Quays, Salford M50 3AH, UK – 0345 308 4620

I always bring my kids to this cinema as it is affordable and parking is free. We can also walk around and make it a day due to its great location. Staff are nice and friendly and the selection of movies always great. They also have a great variety of snacks and treats that my children enjoy.

Reasonably priced cinema with gold facilities and free parking (once validated). Gold class is worth considering if it is an anticipated release you are seeing but all of the screens are modern and comfortable. As always the snacks are crazy prices compared to cost price but they do some combo offer s which bring the price down a bit.

The Longford Essoldo Cinema

1122A Chester Rd, Stretford, Manchester M32 0HA, UK

I wish some company would buy this and make it back into a cinema, a small one.

2, Tony Wilson Place, Manchester M15 4FN, UK – 0161 200 1500

Lovely polite staff and a really pleasant ambience. The only negative was that the coffee booth on the same floor as the cinemas was closed and they didn't even sell popcorn which is one of the healthiest low-calorie snacks around. I had not been to a cinema for ages because in this country some cinema-goers can behave in a loutish and indiscreet loud way but this Home cinema is a breath of fresh air. The seats in the Marina cinema screen room were very comfortable and it was air-conditioned. I'll be frequenting this venue again for sure!

Great city, great food! Getting around is easy by foot or public transportation. Go to the museum's (People's History Museum is a must if you are interested in the history of Mancunians) and the Northern Quarter. We stayed in the Potato Wharf area and saw tons. Love this city!

Palace Theatre

97 Oxford St, Manchester M1 6FT, UK – 0844 871 3019

Went to see Joe Lycett, who was very funny... But...the venue, I was kinda dreading going because it was a hot sticky June evening and older theatres can be even worse inside, off we went to find our seats, the instructions supplied on the were brilliant, number of steps, exact seat directions, fab! And the best bit... The air was cool and quite refreshing after being outside. We had a lovely night and will be looking what else is on at the Palace. Parking was easy and there are lots of places to eat near by.

This is Elvis. A very disappointing show. We only stayed for the first half. The supporting cast were good but Elvis was over after and hammy. Also flat in several songs. The theatre is lovely. Also plenty ladies toilets!!!! A welcome change from the opera house!!

Contact Theatre

Oxford Rd, Manchester M15 6JA, UK – 0161 274 0600

Great venue for the arts with lots going all the time. I went for the hip-hop acts, rapping and b-boys breakdancing. Definitely recommended

A nice structure located in a beautiful and conducive environment. Friendly and highly accommodating workers.
