Manchester’s favourite entertainment destination is undergoing a multi-million-pound transformation.

Already larger-than-life, Printworks is home to Vue Cinema with one of Europe’s largest IMAX screens, Hard Rock Café and many of your favourite restaurants, bars, clubs, health club and entertainment destinations.

Plus, it will soon be home to the largest digital ceiling in Europe. This show-stopping spectacular 1000m2 ceiling covers the entire Printworks internal streets showing extraordinary, creative content and special effects from day to night.
Seeing will truly be believing!

In addition, visitors to Printworks will be able to interact with the screens and compete with other guests on the giant interactive e-gaming screen.

The leisure sector continues to transition as visitors seek the ultimate experience with technology redefining both expectations and possibilities. Visitors will soon benefit from just that with a fully immersive and interactive environment on a scale not previously seen in the UK, making it an ideal location for existing and future venues.”
