Cinemas around Colchester


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

It's OK. Watching a film and not knowing you will be in a tiny cinema sucks the joy out of seeing a movie 'on the big screen'. If the cinema is smaller, the tickets should be equally smaller in price. Now having to introduce the idea of identifying which is a tiny screen before booking means I am more likely to wait until the movie comes out on Netflix. The experience is not much different.

Nice environment, great snack bar, including ice cream and smoothies, even adult beverages, and a coffee shop in the lobby. Multiple screen options and comfortable waiting area seating were a plus. Theatre seats could do with an upgrade but were fine. No immediate parking but bus stop right out front and a great downtown location.

Theatres for Colchester

Lakeside Theatre

University of Essex Colchester Campus, Wivenhoe Park, Colchester CO4 3SQ, UK – 01206 873261

The Lakeside coffee shop provides the nicest cafe area on campus and people know it so finding a seat especially early in the morning is hard work but worth it. The staff are lovely and always accommodating. The Lakeside Theatre itself has a massive selection of plays on including National Theatre Live, touring shows and plays put on by Essex students and the Theatre Arts Society all of which are a joy to watch.

A nice Theatre with an even better café...

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.

I've spent a lot of time at the mercury doing shows and I can say it is the best stage i have ever had the pleasure of performing on. The staff are lovely, the food is great, the tech is up to date, and I'm sure that the new facilities coming with the mercury rising campaign will make it an even better stage to perform on. If you have the chance to work at the Mercury I would recommend you 100%. I cannot wait until I next work at the Mercury Theatre

Headgate Theatre

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

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

An intimate theatre, with spaces to hire, where you can find a wide variety of events, including great drama and music.
