Where to eat before or after a trip to the ODEON Cinema at Liverpool ONE

It’s raining, it’s pouring but Hollywood is calling with brand new movie releases at Liverpool ONE.


The weather seems to think its November rather than June but we’re not letting it dampen our spirits. When trips to the park, walks along the waterfront and beer gardens go soggy, we turn to the big screen for our relaxation fix. ODEON Cinema and The Terrace at Liverpool ONE make for a winning combo with tasty, affordable dining options for all the family, less than a minutes walk from your cinema seat.

With world cuisine on offer alongside new blockbuster releases such as X Men:Dark Phoenix, Men in Black, Rocket Man and the highly anticipated Toy Story 4 (opens on 21st June 2019), why not plan a cinema trip and tuck into lunch, dinner or delicious snacks, all under one (very dry) roof.
