We had a great night in Manchester last night plenty off music and beer, the only let down was the taxi drivers for a journey at midnight for 2 women on their own for less than half a mile the cheapest quote was £10 the most between £12&£15, not very nice to be honest

The print works used to combine pubs, food, cinema, clubs and be successful however based on my last visit I would say standards have dropped but prices are up

There is a good selection of places to eat here, and the odeon cinema. But it isn't as good as the hype - the bars are average & never full. There are better bars / places to eat elsewhere (such as the northern quarter, deansgate, the locks). We usually avoid the print works, and go elsewhere due to high amount... More

We visited the Printworks to see the Star Wars film in 3D. I was pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of pubs and restaurants that were also available. Theatre was comfortable and the choices for getting a meal afterwards was good in this covered mini meal-mall.

Went to see Star Wars this afternoon in the gallery which we last visited some time ago. Found the changes ok but was disappointed how scruffy it looked in the bar. However the drinks and snacks were good and the seats were very comfortable. I agree with other peoples comments about not sitting in row A/B as you cannot see... More

Took my two kids to experience starwars again thinking the IMAX 3D would blow them away with a group of us, my friends behind on row B. Must say, I remembered the screen further away than that as row A is a joke to be honest. 3D looks blurred and dark in the periphery. Also the image is warped that... More

This is the 2nd largest screen in Europe. I live an hour away with a cineworld Imax on the doorstep but thought for such an awesome movie I'd try here. It is amazing!! The screen is massive compared to a normal Imax and the sound was superb. Also with plenty of choices for food it's an excellent night out. It's... More

Went to see Star Wars at the IMAX screen of the Odean Cinema. This cinema sells a wide range of snacks , alcoholic drinks and even has a Costa Coffee bar. The seating is comfortable, there is plenty of leg room and a good height between each row so your view is excellent. The only downside was that the floor... More
