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.

We use this cinema quite a lot the decor is faded and there is weird music playing out of tiny speakers outside. It's not particularly cheap, but it's nearly always empty whose go (afternoons)

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

This place was obviously once incredible for its time, but that's all I can say that's positive. Expensive (even more so online). Staff are fed up and super slow. The seats tip backwards from wear, you can feel all the springs from the worn down...More

glad to have had a meercat movies voucher because this place is really tired, no atmosphere bar the wobbly seats and very few people present. Is one of the older multiplexes that I know in the area and its looking really sad

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
