The UK’s Top Five Vegan-Friendly Cinemas
Even in the age of Internet downloads and widescreen TVs, nothing beats a trip to the cinema to lose yourself in the magic of the movies. And thankfully for compassionate filmgoers everywhere, long gone are the days of only having stale popcorn and processed hot dogs to munch on. Today’s cinemas, recognising that patrons enjoy healthy meals and snacks during films, are offering a wide variety of creative, delicious meat-free treats. If there were an Oscar for compassionate catering, then our Top Five Vegan-Friendly Cinemas would all be worthy nominees:
Deep down in Lake District National Park, vegetarian cuisine is served with a Mediterranean twist. Choose either the slow-roasted stuffed onion, full of nuts and served on a potato with red-pepper sauce, or the pepperonata cassoulet, a braised sweet pepper, haricot bean and tomato cassoulet with bulgur wheat or rice. How deliciously “vegiterranean”!
In the Middle Ages, Robin Hood made sure that nobody went hungry in Nottingham. The Broadway has continued this tradition by serving hearty portions of fresh vegetarian food prepared daily to delight today’s merry men and women.
Home to the Edinburgh International Film Festival, The Filmhouse ensures that there are plenty of vegetarian options to satisfy the tastes of international guests. You may take our knives, but you’ll never take our chickpea-and-coconut curry.
Be sure to stroke the resident moggy who wanders around this cosy gas-lit auditorium, built during World War I. Take a moment to admire the ornate balcony while you tuck into vegan chocolate, ginger tiffins and flapjacks with golden syrup in front of your favourite rom-com.
While its musicians and football teams are known around the world, Manchester gives us something else to shout about, too: Cornerhouse. The Moroccan vegetable-and-hummus rolls and the mighty falafel burger will make every film-going veggie “mad for it”.
