If you have never visited this cinema, you have not experienced Manchester! From the great value mid week tickets, possibility of having the WHOLE screen to yourself, brilliant staff, super clean facilities and unknown adventures in the car park (from football matches to comic learner...More

Been going here since i was a kid and never had a bad experience. The screens are usually not full so sit anywhere you want. Easy free parking. Overall excellent experience.

It seems to be locked in a 1980's time warp with decor. Needs a few thousand spending. It is a shame really as the staff are lovely. (That's why I have rated it very good ). Some of the seats could do with replacing. A...More

Visited showcase cinema whilst my daughter and boyfriend were attending a concert in Manchester. Worst mistake ever!!! This cinema has had no money spent on it since it opened in the late 80’s. The seats were terrible, threadbare and really uncomfortable. No cup holders and...More
