Nice, clean and convenient theatre. Parking is good but its a shame you don't get a discount when attending the theatre and the ability to pay in theatre, like can do in Manchester centre theatres.

Watched Six last night in the Quays Theatre and was BLOWN AWAY by the talent presented. We need more shows like this, perhaps in the lyric theatre too? I’m sure they’d sell out! We were well looked after by the Lowry staff, particularly an elderly...More

The coffee shop in Lowry is seriously understaffed. Tables filled with debris + not cleared or cleaned. Lengthy queues to buy a simple coffee/tea - grossly inefficient for such a high profile attraction. Have experienced this inaquadecy of staff on previous occasions - needs addressing...More

There is a theatre in there but it is separate to the upstairs gallery where there are plenty of Lowry's paintings on show. Well worth seeing if you like his work.
