“Great cultural centre”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

The Cornerhouse is one of our favourite spots in Manchester. As well as its galleries which have regularly changing exhibitions of top contemporary art, there is a 3-screen art house cinema showing really interesting films - we like the annual Spanish and Latin American Film Festival very much. And there's an excellent cafe and restaurant. Mondays and Tuesdays they have a 'Reel Deal' which is great value - pizza, beer or wine and a film for a bargain price. Just be careful if your film is on in Cinema 3 - it's tiny and can be hard to get seats together if you don't get in early.

“Workers' lunch in the cafe”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

If you need a bite to eat while visiting, the 1st floor café is the place to go. The food there all looked so inviting and tasty, it was difficult to make a decision. At the end I had one of the workers’ lunches Falafel with flatbread, salad & tzatziki with a drink for £7. An excellent choice. The café is child-friendly, a high chair etc was provided for our 8-month old girl. A good central location.

“Great films, poor facilities”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

The cornerhouse has been the best place to see independent and foreign language films for many years, and it remains so. It is essential to film and arts culture in our great city.

The ground floor bar is a great place to meet and 1st floor restaurant is also good for quality quick eats before the film. It has a good selection of beers - very important to us Mancunians.

On the downside - and this stuff is the reason they are moving next year - the loos are too small, and screens 2 and 3 are not so good.
