Cinemas around Edinburgh


88 Lothian Rd, Edinburgh EH3 9BZ, UK – 0131 228 2688

From the movie side I love this independent cinema so that would be 5 stars actually. But from the bar/cafe bar side it's brought down to a 3. There is no queuing system in the cafe bar which is fine and that means bar staff should take note of who is next in line to be served. Being an ex barmaid in a busier establishment than the Filmhouse tonight and chatting to someone else in the queue who ran his own bar we know this is doable and not actually difficult. Unfortunately it was a fail. Staff were pleasant enough when you were served. I would put this down to lack of training. If offering a service then do it right especially when most of your patrons are on a timed schedule to catch a film

A brilliant viewing experience! They show a range of art house films, classics and foreign movies. It is a great place to see things which you otherwise might not go to see! The staff are friendly and pleasant, and everything is reasonably priced. Only 1 negative... no pop corn!!! :o but that does mean a really, really clean cinema, and nobody crunching mid movie.

Vue Cinemas

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

The staff are kind and friendly. The cinema is spotlessly clean. Prices are reasonable even for a city centre. The picture quality is truly magnificent and the sound is amazing. You can really hear things coming from behind you. It's a really good day out.

The £5.99 prices are great and the staff are lovely and the ice-cream stand is great. A good choice if film's and great prices. Well worth a visit particularly if you are in the area


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

Luxurious, comfortable recliner seats. Nice ambience. Helpful and friendly team and very reasonable prices (£5.99 for a film is excellent). However, only gripes are atypically scandalous food prices, and a few more staff members serving at peak periods wouldn't go amiss. Other than that, can't fault it.

Very good screen and audio. Comfortable reclining seats. Clean and tidy throughout. Somewhat lacking in atmosphere, but once the lights are out that doesn't matter. Add this to a very competitive price and the package is a winner.

Theatres for Edinburgh

Edinburgh Playhouse

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

Just been to see The Grit Orchestra performing Martyn Bennett's Bothy Culture conducted by the wonderful Greg Lawson. Part of the Edinburgh International Festival. Very nice staff. Leg room in the Playhouse not always the best even for me who's only 5'4" but on the occasion - great seat in the front stalls. Fantastic concert

Went to see wicked. Great show. They need a better way of serving drinks during the interval. It was like a rugby match. Surely with modern technology people could order drinks in advance and then there would be a better way of serving them. We we're also in amongst a coach party who had clearly had been drinking heavily on the way. It nearly kicked off half way through the second half as they started to fight amongst themselves!! Not sure how they were allowed in.

Traverse Theatre

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

The staff at this Starbucks are the friendliest and most welcoming of any local branch. They look after their customers extremely well. The branch is also in a very convenient location indeed, being just a quarter of a mile from Princes Street and passed by many bus routes from all over the city.

Brilliant venue. Nice cafe/bar/restaurant. Gender neutral toilets. Accessible.

The Vault

11 Merchant St, Edinburgh EH1 2QD, UK – 0131 510 0119

Great venue and a nice space for its capacity.
