Cinemas around Edinburgh


Omni Leisure Building 11, 61 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.

Lovely cool design. Wide seats to fit almost all body types. Also an option for a more premium seat. Easy to find what you're looking for. Staff are attentive and helpful.


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

Went to see the new Star Wars movie here , really enjoyed the comfy seats and clean cinema , I nip into Poundland downstairs for popcorn and snacks rather than paying way over the top prices in the cinema itself .

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.


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

A varied programme of films, often themed by director, genre or country. There are baby and carer screenings and some educational events. The film house cafe bar is lovely! Vegetarians are catered for and some lovely world cuisine is often on offer. The cafe can get busy as the weekends and you can take your drinks into the cinema. The cafe hosts a regular movie themed quiz night. There is a book crossing shelf in the cafe. There are films for sale in the foyer. Look out for the 'secret book sculpture' - the first of a series of mysterious sculptures to appear in venues across Edinburgh.

Awesome no-frills theater with very affordable prices for tickets. Didn't explore their snacks but it didn't smell like overpriced popcorn so that's a plus. Great if you just want to see a movie without paying extra for reclining super sofas.

Theatres for Edinburgh

Festival Theatre

13-29 Nicolson St, Edinburgh EH8 9FT, UK – 0131 529 6000

The was a very good experience. Staff were very helpful and Ben when busy had time for customers. Little time before start of theatre staff made sure food was prepared in time but with same quality. Well done that lady who made it work.

Went to watch War Horse with my girlfriend and have to say the show was outstanding! The theatre itself is perfectly located just at the start of Edinburgh Old Town along the South Bridge and the theatre itself is a great size with easy access bar for start and intermission of whateve r you go and see. I liked how they had different ques for coffee or alcohol but considering how many people were three you weren't waiting long. Toilets on each level, again easy access and no time queuing. We were on level 3 and had an excellent view of the stage.

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! 👍

I preferred the intimacy and vibrance of the Grassmarket venue. Too much chrome and glitzy stuff. Seating could be an issue for older and or disabled patrons. Audio loop very impressive and customer facing staff are first rate.

Edinburgh Playhouse

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

This is a typical theater and the space is what you would expect. The bar (witch is open to ticket holders two hours before the show) is nice and comfortable. We were running a little late so decided to eat in the bar. The food was just OK it was s bit dry and some of the flavours were a bit short of the mark, in particular the Brie and mango parcel. But it filled a hole and domed up the wine. We would have given five if the food had been a little better.

Nice place. One of very few that still stages operas or ballets. Unfortunately not all people, who attend such events know how to behave and the snacks or drinks there are rather pricey. On the other hand nobody will probably be going there every week, so occasional treat is fine. The staff is friendly and professional. You can still hire binoculars to watch the close-up of the stage, but for the £1 extra pound I don't think you really get good value for your money.
