Cinemas around Colchester

Odeon

Head St, Colchester CO1 1NH, UK – 0333 014 4501

I can't put in 6 stars, which is a shame. New town, new cinema, first weekend my kids visited. Didn't have high hopes. Towards the end of the day, so the little one was getting fractious. We queued for Rogue One buckets and meal deals, couldn't see something the little one would drink (I swear his blood type is Semi-Skimmed) he threw a wobbly, and the lovely man behind the counter, Kyle, came to the rescue. He found some milk, helped calm my son, everyone went into the cinema relieved. It doesn't take much, but it means loads when you're a single dad with cranky, excited kids. Great cinema with lovely, helpful staff. UPDATE: Went to see Avengers: Infinity War and had a great time. Gabriel sorted out the dazzling array of snacks, and really helpful when my friend had lost his hat. Superb customer service!

Always clean, staff are great fun and enthusiastic always. Comfy seats and decent leg room. Great place to see films for the proper cinema experience

Theatres for Colchester

Headgate Theatre

14 Chapel St N, Colchester CO2 7AT, UK – 01206 366000

Saw Dean Friedman in concert and it was great. The ambience was good, the acoustics brilliant and an audience full of fans. Hope they get more bookings like Dean

Lovely old theatre. Excellent staff. Some great productions too.

Mercury Theatre

Colchester CO1 1PT, UK – 01206 573948

Great theatre, good location close to car parks and restaurants. I would not recommend the restaurant attached to the theatre. The food was not good, the fact that only 2 tables where occupied is indicative of local opinion. I'd definitely visit again, and eat elsewhere.

Great theatre, you get a fantastic view of the stage from everywhere and plenty of legroom for a change. Just watched "The Play That Goes Wrong" there and wasn't disappointed, funniest thing I've seen in a long, long time!

Roman Theatre

Maidenburgh St, Colchester CO1 1TT, UK – 01206 282931

Pretty hard to find the once largest theatre in England. This landmark deserves better.

Sadly not as well presented as it should be
