The Odeon Manchester is located in the Printworks on Withy Grove – once the largest newspaper printing house in Europe, it was derelict by the 1990s until the IRA bombing of Manchester prompted a massive redevelopment of the area and the conversion of the building into a giant entertainment venue.

Unsurprisingly, the Odeon is a biggie: 23 auditoriums, with one IMAX screen, all of them with wheelchair spaces. There's lift access to all floors, and an infrared system for the hard-of-hearing (enquire at box office). In common with other mega-Odeons there's a licensed Gallery for over 18s, and the cinema runs regular Flashback Film nights on Monday evenings, showing classic and cult films from the last few decades at bargain prices. The rest of the Printworks features popular restaurant chains, coffee shops, bars, pubs and clubs.

The NCP Printworks car park is not free, but the Odeon will validate parking, giving you a discount. Trams stop at Shudehill station opposite the Printworks. Buses from the north stop at Shudehill interchange, and from the south at Piccadilly Gardens, a seven-minute walk from the venue.

Victoria rail station is two minutes' walk away, and Piccadilly 20 minutes for national lines.
