“Best cinema for miles...”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Truly independent, feels a bit special compared to the chains, and it is! Really enjoy the event, with a great bar and food as well, a whole experience, not just see a film and bobby off as quickly as you can, worth spending the day here.

“Cultural Centre”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

According to a local public house the late great John Peel once referred to Sheffield as the cultural centre of the universe; well I've not visited enough places to be able to comment on that but if you're looking for culture, coffee and cinema you'll not go far wrong visiting the Showroom.

“Wedding reception”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

My daughter had her wedding reception at the Workstation, it was an excellent "do it yourself" wedding, she had afternoon tea for the day guests and pie & peas for the evening guests. The chef Simon Ayres did us all proud and the pie was delicious. Thank you Simon. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a wedding venue and not an exorbitant price.

“My favourite cinema by far!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

I love coming to the Showroom to see a wide variety of independent films. There are often films in different languages as well as events (ShAFF) and very tasty food in the adjoining bar. Great place, friendly staff and brilliant atmosphere!

“Cinema visit”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

The showroom is much mire personable than any other cinema in Sheffield. As cheesy as it sounds, I find it to be 'big enough to cope, small enough to care' and all the staff are very friendly. I usually come here when an interesting foreign movie comes out. The showroom have a great line up of events and each year have a 'Japanese week' which I have enjoyed attending for a few years now. I don't usually buy treats/ drinks inside but I have had a few coffees which were nice. All in all, great movie selections of new, old foreign and domestic choice and nice, friendly staff.
