Visited here, for the first time, last week to visit the cinema, but, was very impressed with the whole experience. Well stocked bar, and comfortable seating area, tastefully decorated, the Macrobert clearly has so much more to offer, and will certainly return to explore.

Fantastic outing with our theatre group to this excellent venue. All enjoyed the fabulous, superb, hilarious and excellent production of 'The Steamie'. First rate venue with helpful staff and comfortable tiered seats. Easy access and parking. Well organised theatre.
