Published on:01 OCTOBER 2022

The nights are drawing in and what could be better on a cool autumnal evening than a trip to the cinema followed by a meal out in a cosy restaurant?

Our Vue cinema is surrounded by buzzing restaurants and bars, from Nando’s and Five Guys for chicken and burgers, to Tapas Revolution and Wagamama for flavours of Spain and Asia.

And if you don’t fancy a full-on meal, you can enjoy drinks, sweets, hot snacks or ice cream from the comfort of your leather reclining seat while you watch the film.

Here’s our round-up of all the new releases, live performances and long-running films you can see at Vue this October.
