The staff at The Showroom are always very friendly and make things much better than a chain cinema. The bar has a good selection of beer on that you can take into the cinema. Only downside is there are no cup holders on the cinema seats.

I visited this cinema towards the end of last year because of their "one free film for new students" promotion. They have a great selection of films, and they generally veer towards new independent releases rather than the latest Hollywood blockbusters, targeting a more artsy and mature audience than your typical chain cinema; prices are also slightly cheaper due to...

The cinema works hard to provide equal opportunities for the people with impairment of hearing to watch movies because every Monday every film they play is subtitled. That is really thoughtful and there are always some interesting movies to watch here. I will keep coming back.

The best in Sheffield. It might not be the most hi-tech, nor indeed the comfiest, but for its choice of world cinema, and less-mainstream movies, it is my favourite by a mile. Nice bar too serving good beer and the food looks good. Sheffield is so lucky to have the showroom.

Stopped off here for tea and cake before catching train. This was a good deal for £3.75. Ginger and orange cake was very tasty although just seemed like gingerbread with a cream cheese topping and a slice of crystallised orange by way of decoration. Delicious though. Surroundings were a little bit basic. but ok

I can remember when this fabulous art deco building was indeed just that, a car show room; though nowadays it is the home of great films. The Showroom cinema is wonderful customer experience from the popcorn to the accompanying restaurant. This little film theatre, plays host to such a diverse film selection. Which range from the mainstream Hollywood blockbusters, to... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to a business meeting and enjoyed it immensely. We all enjoyed the sandwiches which were freshly made and the service was fast. Great value for money too.

This cinema is clean and the staff are friendly and very helpful. They have a numerous film festivals/events on throughout the year which are fantastic. The cafe/bar area offers nice food and a good range of drinks. I'd recommend the showroom over the big brands any day.
