When I first moved to Nottingham, I didn't know the Cornerhouse even existed let alone what it actually was. I had heard people mention it before but was a bit baffled and didn't think to look into it any further. It wasn't until a friend and I decided to go to the cinema there that I had to figure out where and what it was.
You can find the Cornerhouse on the corner of Burton Street and South Sherwood Street in the city centre, not far from the main street which is Parliament Street if you have never been there before. When people talk about the Cornerhouse, sometimes they can be referring to a whole area. Next to the actual building are a lot of restaurants and instead of using a street name, I would normally tell someone to meet me at Cornerhouse.
Inside the actual building you can find a Subway, Chiquitos and the Flaming Dragon. Outside of the building however, there is much more choice. You could go to Nandos, Pizza Hut, TGI Fridays, Tamatanga, The Slug and Lettuce, Bella Italia and more. I love that there is so much choice here for places to eat and no matter how many times I go, I will never get bored of choosing between these restaurants.
The cinema is really what I normally come to the Cornerhouse for. Here you can find a 14 screen Cineworld cinema which is situated over two different floors. The cinema itself is extremely modern, showing the latest films including a wide range in 3D. I don't often go to see any 3D films though due to the prices and the fact that they aren't available on a student 2 for 1 ticket. There are always plenty of films to choose from here and they normally run for a pretty long time. One of the only real problems with this cinema is that there never seem to be many people serving on the tickets counter, even when there are really long lines. I have never seen more than 2 people serving at any one time and usually, there is only one person there. I have never had to wait long to be served for food or drinks though. In the screens, the seats are comfortable and spacious and I really do think it is one of the better cinemas I have been to.
It it's some fun or pampering you're looking to have here, there are also plenty of choices. In the bottom of the Cornerhouse building there is a casino and while I have never been there, I would love to. Casinos are lots of fun if you can manage to limit yourself and only go for a bit of fun. There is also a hair salon if you feel like getting made up or a change in style. Just next door to the main building is the Just The Tonic Comedy club which later on turns into the Forum nightclub. I love going to the Forum on a Monday night which is the student night for Nottingham Trent University. The drinks are cheap and the music is good and I spend most of the night drinking.
As you can see, the Cornerhouse in Nottingham has something to offer everyone and if you haven't been yet, you should do!
Summary: A good place to visit
