It's not often that you get to see a little cinema complex inside a very art oriented place- but the facilities here are brilliant. If you're into independent culture, here is a great place to visit. The films on offer are brilliant, the galleries are great, and the general level of comfort is first class.

This is a lovely cinema which shows mostly independent films. It is very comfortable - one of the screens has sofas - and there is a bar and cafe too, open to everyone whether they stay and see a film or not. The membership packages are good value and there are special offers for students too.

I have been to numerous exhibitions and events at FACT over the years and never fail to be entertained, informed, and stimulated. Tonight I came with my son to see the Lindsay Anderson film 'if....', starring Malcolm McDowell. I have owned the movie on DVD for a number of years, but wanted to see it on 'the big screen.' The...

Went to see "Logan" , expecting the place to be full - it wasn't- neither was it empty - a great place to have a wine or beer with the film , very clean. It's a bit more expensive than VUE type cinemas , but offers so much more. Always good exhibitions going on too.

I joined FACT, as a member three years ago. It is really several facilities in one venue. These are quite independent although complementary. Picturehouse - cinema, showing amazing variety for all visitors, with special showings for audiences with special needs, eg people on autistic spectrum, senior citizens. Educational and inspirational exhibitions, with volunteers to discuss and explain the concepts of... More

Not like any other cinema I've been to. Great layout indoors and friendly staff. There is a cafe downstairs that serves nice food and there is also a bar upstairs that serves alcoholic drinks for you to take into the cinema with you. There's also a lift for wheelchair users. There is a cinema room downstairs (I can't remember the... More

Far more civilised than the Odeon - and they have a different range of films to the normal blockbusters
