After travelling over an hour to watch my first film at Showcase Manchester I was met with a grand entrance which impressed me greatly but the rest, to my disappointment, didn’t follow suit. The staff are understandably miserable with no work to do, the food...More

Visited screen 3 tonight. The seat was large and comfy, with plenty of leg room. However, the arm rest fell off and there was no drink holder. I could heard the music playing in the next theatre and it was very distracting, especially as the...More

We've been here many times, it's usually really quiet, loads of parking and hardly any queues. Until recently, the seating was unreserved, and the seats were a little uncomfortable On my last visit, we were offered the new XLR seats, at a little extra cost,...More
