Cinemas around Heslington

City Screen Picturehouse York

13-17 Coney St, York YO1 9QL, UK – 0871 902 5726

I am a member of the fan club, quite literally! Love this place. They show a really good range of films and if you become a member, tickets are cheaper. Membership also gets you a discount from the good restaurant and bar on the ground floor. In the restaurant/bar, a tasty menu is on offer, however they also keep a good range of wines and beers, and serve it at a price that isn't excessive. The restaurant/bar is a great place to hang out in the summer as there is a decked balcony that overlooks the river. The building as a whole is really rather special, though, and has been designed to allow the maximise the amount of natural light inside. It's the best cinema in York, still!

A lovely cinema in the centre of York with a Riverside bar. Often shows live performances of theater/ballet, and hosts art from local artists. There is a club area downstairs and a great staff. City Screen also shows a lot of indie films and has film seasons dedicated to a director/theme

Everyman Cinema York

Blossom St, York YO24 1AJ, UK – 01904 437288

First of all, it is expensive. Got to say though, it certainly is a great cinematic experience. Excellent screens and sound quality. Comfy sofa and armchair seating with plenty of room. Excellent staff who deliver good food to your seat. Excellent booking system and you can even have a beer during the film. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

Literally the best cinema experience I've ever had. The cinema's style is beautiful, elegant but calm and casual. The staff are so lovely and I love that you can order food and drinks to your seat in the screen. You are shown to your seats by an usher and the audience is welcomed by a member of staff before the film starts. I loved the personal touch and will definitely make this my regular for cinema. Also the screen was warm! How many times are you cold in the cinema?! They've cracked it. And its worth the extra few quid.

Theatres for Heslington

York Theatre Royal

St Leonard's Pl, York YO1 7HD, UK – 01904 623568

A great theatre in the centre of York with good bus connections. The theatre is a short walk from the train station (or two bus stops on numerous lines) and is quite close to the minster. Housed in a lovely historic building with a beautiful modern extension the theatre hosts a large variety of plays and workshops throughout the year. There is also a bar/cafe at the theatre that is not too expensive and has a nice range of food and drink.

The actual theatre is great. Old fashioned, easy to see and hear and not stiflingly hot. However, the facilities are woefully inadequate despite a recent facelift, hence 1 star off. 3 toilets on the ground floor ladies and not enough seating for people to drink refreshments in the cafe area. Giant sofas and armchairs use up valuable space. Also the ice cream lady didn't come in during interval.

Joseph Rowntree Theatre

Haxby Rd, York YO31 8TA, UK – 01904 501935

What a nice little theatre for a night out. Free parking nearby for the show too makes this even more of a bargain. Our family night out to see The Producers was a real treat. We'll definitely be looking for opportunities to go back here in the future.

A comfortable and pleasing theatre, good visibility and sound. Very helpful and courteous staff. A great venue!

Friargate Theatre

Lower Friargate, York YO1 9SL, UK – 01904 655317

Quirky informal and fun. We were made very welcome on arrival and thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Will definitely visit again.

Great fun. Right here right now is really one to watch.
