Cinemas around Edinburgh


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

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).

Seats are comfi and you get lots of space for yourself and the location is perfect. However: - Sound is not that impressive at all, for that kind of very "blockbustery" cinemas (if you're sensible to this kind of things, if not, the sound is not bad, it's just not great either). - Don't bother paying for the VIP seats, because you'll end up with youngster all around you, laughing for hours because they took the seat they weren't supposed to. - The snack staff is the slowest I have seriously ever seen in my whole life. And the queuing system is super messy, which doesn't help. Worst experience ever, 25 minutes to get some popcorn ON A TUESDAY NIGHT.

Edinburgh University Film Society

60 Pleasance, Edinburgh EH8 9TJ, UK



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

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.

Good selection of films and good show times. Refreshments are horrendously overpriced for what you actually get - top tip is to book first and pickup at the self-service kiosk, thus avoiding any human interaction or being oversold popcorn. The Mark Strong voiceover before every movie goes on rather a lot and there aren't usually enough trailers - just loads of daft car adverts and other adverts for things you'd never afford/buy in the first place, followed by an extremely LONG advert FOR THE CINEMA which is stupid because you're IN THE CINEMA. If looking for an authentic cinema experience - go elsewhere are there are plenty of independent cinemas in Edinburgh. Totally fine for a jaunt to catch the latest major release however - not usually packed out (unlike ther other Vues in Edinburgh) and shops nearby are decent.

Theatres for Edinburgh

Omni Centre

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

It is a big and beautiful place. On the top floor there is a large VUE cinema, and on the ground floor there are several restaurants and bars but, this place needs something else that will bring it a little more life. Especially during the week. I love the two giraffe sculptures next to the entrance.

Ideally located in the city centre with the only decent sized car park around. It's a decent location in its self or perfectly placed for everything in the east end. There's a reasonable selection of eateries, a cinema and a gym.

Edinburgh Playhouse

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

Always good productions on, and facilities are good. Seating no matter where is pretty good! We were in the upper circle last week and I was impressed.

We went to see "Jackson" starring Ben tonight. I had my son with me who has special needs. The show was amazing and I cannot praise the staff at the Playhouse enough.They made every effort to help and even gave my son a VIP pass to have his show guide autographed by Ben ...this was first in the queue! This meant so much as part of his disability means he can't wait for very long because of sensory issues. A huge thank you from myself and my son for making it a special night .

Rose Theatre

204 Rose St, Edinburgh EH2 4AZ, UK

Visited last night for "A Bottle of Wine and Patsy Cline". Good show, but on the 2nd floor - asked at the interval where the toilets were only to be told they were in the basement! Checked with another staff member on the first floor and was again told the basement. On returning to my seat I spoke to the usher and asked him to pass my comments on to the manager. I have since been told by a friend that there ARE toilets on the other floors. I would be interested to know why I had to go down (and back up) three flights of stairs?

Fantastic local theatre. The show 'Patsy Cline and a Bottle of Wine' was brilliant, so professional it could be on Broadway. Lovely theatre.
