The Ballroom, CT1 2JA

Theatre – There are two theatres in Canterbury; The Marlowe Theatre which is located in the city centre and the Gulbenkian which is located at the University of Kent. For an afternoon or evening of culture pay a visit to one of them and discover a new drama piece.
Cinema – If you prefer film over theatre then you’re in luck because Canterbury is home to two cinemas; the Odeon which plays all of the latest releases and the Curzon which is a more intimate cinema with comfy seating that shows that latest releases and small, independent films.
