Owner description: The 16-year-old leisure scheme houses a state-of-the-art IMAX cinema, fully equipped gym and health club, complete with a 20m swimming pool, and 16 bars and restaurants. All in the heart of Manchester! From 6am until 3am, the scheme is alive with activity. Visitors can catch a spinning class before work, pop in for lunch, watch the latest blockbuster or meet friends for a drink after work. Thanks to the newly opened Exchange Square Metrolink stop and the recently renovated Manchester Victoria station visitors can be at the scheme in minutes. The Printworks has an excellent choice of bars, cafes and restaurants offering everything from light bites to three course meals, noodles to burgers, European cuisine or something from the deep south. Not only does The Printworks have a great offering for food and drink but it also has a stellar events calendar. Make The Printworks a one-stop shop for entertainment in Manchester!

Been to the print works on numerous occasions. The cinema is very good (imax) but very expensive. Food wise it is also ok, but don't expect amazing service. Seems more catered for drinking later on with some good bars and deals on, but can get a little rowdy.

How expensive, just less than thirty pounds for three people to watch a film. Good job we enjoyed it but I just have to say that using the ladies toilets neither of the soap machines had any hand soap in them. Get your housekeeping checked please !

I've been here a few times now, usually for the awesome IMAX cinema but occasionally to start a night out as well. There's a selection of good bars and restaurants to choose from catering to most tastes which makes it pretty good for a night out of say meal, then cinema then bars, or a a launching point for a night out into Manchester for which it's pretty well situated.

Aside from the IMAX there's nothing you can get here that you can't get elsewhere in a big city but having it all under 1 roof in a fairly novel setting is pretty cool.

One thing to watch out for is parking prices. The official print works car park is insanely costly. It cost me £9 just to park for 3 hours so that we could watch a film there - crazy!

this place was ok as it had a cinema and restaurants, a few bars etc. nothing to rave about but a typical complex. great for a date night for couples, id imagine it would be quite pricey for families though. worth a visit if you are in Manchester but if you miss it you're not missing much.
