Came here to watch a movie. The prices are ridiculous and the bar staff are beyond rude. Looked down on us and was so condescending. Totally ruined the evening.

We visited on Monday for an afternoon showing. Actually, we would never watch a film anywhere else, apart from the quirky film nights in the Liverpool philharmonic hall! Fact has three main film screens, and the fourth is in the room called "the box" which shows lesser known films, sometimes foreign, in a small room with two seater couches to... More

Whenever we want to watch a new movie in a cinema we need to do it in comfort so we always goby Fact. It also gives us an opportunity to view new art and exhibitions at the centre which we always find amazing.

I love cinemas that have a little character and this one certainly does. We watched the film sat on sofas and were given extra cushions if needed. The atmosphere was relaxed and we made a trip to the bar for a drink which we took in with us. Can't wait to go back.

The FACT is a great place to visit if you want to check out the edgy, arty side of Liverpool. The garden- style café boasts a range of teas and foods, the sandwiches come on thick soft bread and the teas are ever changing, really nice spot to stop if you're exploring Liverpool. The cinemas upstairs shows all usual new... More

It's not often that you get to see a little cinema complex inside a very art oriented place- but the facilities here are brilliant. If you're into independent culture, here is a great place to visit. The films on offer are brilliant, the galleries are great, and the general level of comfort is first class.

This is a lovely cinema which shows mostly independent films. It is very comfortable - one of the screens has sofas - and there is a bar and cafe too, open to everyone whether they stay and see a film or not. The membership packages are good value and there are special offers for students too.

I have been to numerous exhibitions and events at FACT over the years and never fail to be entertained, informed, and stimulated. Tonight I came with my son to see the Lindsay Anderson film 'if....', starring Malcolm McDowell. I have owned the movie on DVD for a number of years, but wanted to see it on 'the big screen.' The...

Went to see "Logan" , expecting the place to be full - it wasn't- neither was it empty - a great place to have a wine or beer with the film , very clean. It's a bit more expensive than VUE type cinemas , but offers so much more. Always good exhibitions going on too.
