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!

The price for this place is a bit steep for the service you get. I would recommend this if you have a deal or if it is a big film. I would suggest a smaller cinematic location in clacton where the price is more appropriate for the quality of service you will be getting.

Theatres for Colchester

Headgate Theatre

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

A gem of a small theatre. The performance is superb too. The wall is covered with photos of past performance. Very nostalgic and intimate theatrical sentiment.

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

Mercury Theatre

Colchester CO1 1PT, UK – 01206 573948

Saw Prince tribute ..Mark Anthony and it was brilliant. Great performance and a very enjoyable evening. Bit rsque and a few of the audience offended but if you know Prince you should of expected it...wouldn't be tribute to him if a clean show!! 😁

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.

Roman Theatre

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

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

Very informative also lovely for a walk.
