Cinemas around Edinburgh

ODEON Luxe - Edinburgh West

120 Wester Hailes Rd, Edinburgh EH14 3HR, UK – 0333 014 4501

Simply amazing. Plenty of parking and the new facilities are modern and well run. You have to wait for 5 minutes to get popcorn if there is a queue, but the screen, sound and comfy seating is well worth it. Superb experience and just went to the iSense for the first time this week. Well worth paying extra for such a great experience. Also couldn't rate the staff any better. From the counter to the ticket checkers, all polite and friendly. Very well done and will be returning very soon with a view to buying the monthly pass.

Please hit like if this was useful. Currently the best value cinema in Edinburgh and with great facilities. Parking right outside makes it convenient too. The only let down is no ice cream counter. Due to its location in the west of the city prices are cheaper than other cinemas in the area. Hot food is also available with pizza and chips on the menu that can be taken in to the movie. I have found staff helpful. There is bargain store next door that offers a great selection of sweets and treats that you could visit to stock up on snacks for watching the movie.

Dominion Cinema Edinburgh

Newbattle Terrace, Edinburgh EH10 4RT, UK – 0131 447 4771

The most comfortable cinema ever! The big squishy couches are amazing and it's lovely to watch a film at the cinema and feel like I'm in a living room. It's frustrating that (some of? All of? I'm not sure) screens are only accessible by stairs because stairs aren't very accessible when you have limited mobility, but everything else is awesome.

Amazing cinema! Much better than the multiplexes. Went for first class and didn't regret it. Only slightly more than you'd pay for two basic seats at a city centre cinema chain and you get a very comfy reclining couch & table service. Lovely way to enjoy a film. Would actually have liked a short intermission at longer films (went to see Star Wars) to top up your drink as don't like to disturb others to go out.

Theatres for Edinburgh

Church Hill Theatre Edinburgh

Morningside Rd, Edinburgh EH10 4DR, UK – 0131 220 4348

350 seats with good views from everywhere. Auditorium is up a short flight of stairs, with disabled access via a lift. No car park, except for disabled spaces immediately outside theatre. Large bar area on ground floor, also serving food and coffee. Small friendly venue, with a variety of productions, many of them local amateur companies.

I'm always a little disappointed that this isn't a grand Victorian theatre taking the full height of the building. The stage and seating are all upstairs on the first floor. It does have lift access for those who can't manage the stairs. Having said that it is a good size for smaller productions who may be swamped in something the size of the King's Theatre down the road.
