Love going to the Century Theatre, can often see a film that we previously wanted to see but missed. Sometimes also see a film that has not long been released. Some good shows with excellent artists.Staff are very friendly and always ready to give information about the theatre. Very cheap to visit.

Great evening watching Paul Young and Dave Kelly(founder members of the Blues Band) on stage at Coalville. Friendly and intimate performance with great music. Helpful staff and volunteers on the car park, at the bar and behind the scenes. Thanks for a brilliant evening.

This small theatre is wonderful, the last show I attended on 30th September (Tony Stockwell)was marvellous. However, when we got to the theatre our seats had been double booked! Along with several other people. The tickets had been booked nearly 4 months previously. This is not good enough. We were eventually "reseated" on chairs from the foyer.

A real gem of a theatre - a piece of unique 1950's history with a full programme of plays, films, music, comedians and events - including a Panto ! It is tucked away behind a housing estate next to the Snibston Counrty Park. (The former Snibston Discovery Museum adjacent has now been demolished). You need to check out the theatre... More

This latest show from Badapple was superb. Very topical with references to the forthcoming gigantic white elephant HS2. A cast of three gave everything in a wonderful show. It was also great to see the theatre nearly, of not, full. This is a venue which just has to be supported. There is always a great variety of events coming up... More

I took my niece to watch a film and was impressed with how much it had improved. It's a hidden gem that isn't used enough. It shows films and performances and is an ideal small venue with really reasonable prices.

I love this place! I'll go again, perhaps in the evening to see a show. It's full of atmosphere. The seats are the good old fashioned flip down style. My two daughters had a nice time.
