Situated in Stirling University grounds this is a good place to visit if you are in the Stirling area. The film house has a decent and fairly current film on most days and evenings and is usually free from badly behaved children. There is often live entertainment on in the main theatre at weekends or evenings including Pantos at Christmas,... More

I've been here a few times over the last year to see a Shakespeare production and a movie. The staff at the ticket area are always friendly but staff behind the bar can be rather distracted in their own conversations to serve at times. The place was reasonably clean each time but the building is extremely small especially when they... More

Excellent Facility with lovely helpful staff. The theatre is small but great value and always has a vast array of shows. There is also a small cinema which is just okay, and the restaurant/cafe serves very good food.

First time at a panto for my daughters and they were not disappointed. First time for all of us visiting this venue and we will be back! Panto was great fun and "ad-libbing" was very slick. The group of dentists on their night out wont forget it! Well laid out theatre and great wheelchair access, very comfy and reasonable prices.... More

Went to see the panto last night. We go every year but last nights performance was hilarious with great ad-libbing when the stars were laughing so much they forgot the odd lines and the wicked one forgetting her accent, then the lights and sounds going off the stars were very professional. All the wee mishaps made this the funniest panto... More

Went to the MacBob to see the opening night of this years panto, Beauty and the Beast. It was hilarious and great entertainment. Well done to the cast. The MacBob is a fantastic theatre.
