The Broadway is a very popular arts cinema in the trendy Hockley area, adjacent to the city centre. The bar is even more popular than the films, particularly with pretentious arty people! They used to be very good for vegan food (with interesting options on the specials board every day) but have downgraded their offer recently. However, there are a few vegan options on the new menu including: Butternut squash and ginger curry; grated carrot, houmous & spinach sandwich; vegan pizza (but only with pesto and sundried tomatoes  - no vegetables!); falafel burger; hotdog with fried onion. Side dishes include wedges, olives and salad.

If you are seeing a film, there are often dishes that can be served with a few minutes of ordering and you can get a discount by buying your film ticket and meal at the same time (though currently this only seems to apply to the butternut squash curry). There is also a decent range of beer, spirits and fruit juices available.

You can sit in the (much nicer) Mezz Bar upstairs where you can order food from downstairs.

If you're seeing a film, or even if you're not, they have little tubs of Bessant and Drury vegan coconut milk 'ice-cream', available from the freezer near to the box office.
