Cinemas around Edinburgh


Omni Leisure Building 11, 61 Leith St, Edinburgh EH1 3AU, UK – 0345 308 4620

Large and well organised cinema. Close to Restaurants. Booked and picked up tickets on an auto-dispenser. Good venue for an afternoon / evening out, or a quick visit to a film, if that's you want

Superb seats with loads of leg-room, plus head-rest. Sound and film quality faultless. Easy to book online and collect tickets on arrival (but no option to scan QR code at self-service machine).


Ocean Drive, Edinburgh EH6 6JJ, UK – 0345 308 4620

Went today to see The Last Jedi. Film was fine, but a pity about the long period of distraction from the family who made a fair amount of noise with their crisp packets and crisp crunching. They hadn't really thought about the effect on others in the studio.

Screens 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 now have leather recliner chairs throughout (plus screen 12 soon and the refurb of 1, 2, and 3 will start soon). Very comfy. Try not to fall asleep though! They have really good 4k projectors that ensure a high quality picture even when the film isn't in 4k. Although some have dead pixels (such as screen 8) which is very very distracting to me. I love this Vue. It used to be the best place in Edinburgh for quality and price but now you pay more for that quality and it isn't always worth it but if they install recliners in all their screens then they will be absolutely amazing.

Theatres for Edinburgh

Omni Centre

Greenside Row, Edinburgh EH1 3AA, UK – 0131 524 7770

I quite like this place. The cinema dominates it and it is as you would expect from Vue, top quality cinema experience. There are plenty of shops and restaurants on the ground floor too with plenty of parking. Only problem is the car park is like a maze. Good luck finding your way out - on foot or on four wheels.

Good way to end off a day in town. Nice range of restaurants and large cinema. Can get quite busy but staff in all areas are lovely. If seated in the hallway, it can be a little chilly with doors being left open.

Traverse Theatre

10 Cambridge St, Edinburgh EH1 2ED, UK – 0131 228 1404

Easy going downstairs bar with decent beer selection. Not too crowded nor too noisy when we were there. Notable, unusually inclusive toilet signage. Way to go, Scotland/Traverse! 👍

Great venue. I felt a bit daunted going on my own but if you ask for help they are ready and willing. I went to see Eve and enjoyed it. I would advise if you suffer from claustrophobia to check out whare the event is being performed, as I was taken downstairs and it was quite a walk, along corridors with no windows, so I did give that some consideration that some people may find this difficult. The staff were very helpful. I was in the venue for the correct time but I had quite a wait standing by the lift once asked to, then the walk.I have poor mobility, so I did feel the wait was a bit too long but otherwise everything was fine for me and I look fallward to my next visit.

Edinburgh Playhouse

18-22 Greenside Ln, Edinburgh EH1 3AA, UK – 0844 871 3014

We visit quite a few times each year and NEVER been disappointed. Any and every seat has a good view. Well set out! Just go early if you want a drink from the bar as it gets very busy.

The playhouse is a great little theatre in Edinburgh. We make a point of going every year to the panto, and I always get a buzz from the place. The building is beautiful inside too. It's over a hundred years old and has some gorgeous plasterwork in the ceiling.
