The Gateway Theatre was a small producing and receiving theatre in the city of Chester, England, which opened in the 1970s and closed in 2007.
Difficult to fault this place really except maybe for the price of some plays and films. Plenty for the smaller kids to do in the play den room from reading, chilling to a film, drawing etc and there are plenty of reasonably priced supervised craft sessions too if you need some space. In the library enjoy a drink while the kids dress up. And of course the film / theatre. Perfect for a rainy day with friends.
Fabulous establishment with multifunction. Library, Café and theatre in one place. What an amazing place. I was there for a talk and the acoustic was excellent. I sat up high in the circle and heard everything as if I had been next to the stage. Wish I could have spent more time there.
Great night at the story house seeing Russell Kane and friends. I haven't been before but it was really night inside.. it's not very well sign posted though so make sure you give yourself some time to find your seat.. Also there is a bar at the top which is usually quieter than the main bar if you want a drink before hand!
Fantastic first experience of this place. Took my 4 year old to watch the dinosaur world. He absolutely loved it. He even got to stroke a couple of dinosaurs when the show ended. We had our tea at the kitchen restaurant and the food was lovely. Great library for kids too. Will definitely come back.
Amazing place. So much to do here fantastic building with something for all the family from your baby to your grandparents. Lots of amazing performances go on here. Currently secret seven is on until 14th January. It's an amazing show and it's not to be missed. My dog is also one of the Scampers so it's worth going to see.
It is simple a fantastic venue that is hosting great performances in the theatre and a good selection of films in the cosy cinema. If we had the spare cash we would probably attend several days a week to watch many things and put on a lot of weight by eating too much honeycomb ice cream in the intervals! A big pat on the back for all those involved in initially making this venue happen and those who are running it now. Keep up the great work.
Lovely, so glad the Old Odeon has a new trendy lease of life. Cinema is lovely only about 50 but extremely comfortable seats. Have t yet been ti the theatres but family members have and loved every minute of it. Great asset for Chester which was missing the arts for so long whilst the Council made more poor decisions.
Amazing Place! Expertly designed, modern all-round complex with great facilities that actively boosts the cultural appeal of Chester. The performance and showing spaces are fully acoustically treated giving great concept of sound, all without bleed to other rooms. Everything just looks astounding and I would recommend anyone to go and experience a production in the auditorium. You should enjoy it as much as I did!
Fantastic place for coffee and getting some work done. Lovely artistic environment. saw a fantastic performance. Building has had a wonderful restoration. Has some gluten free choices but all the food I've tried so far have been very spicy.
