I love the Filmhouse, I love the films they show from old classics to documentaries to foreign films and kids films, there is a good mix and something to suit all. The theatre is comfortable and warm and has a vintage feel to it as...More
The film programme is very good, and cinema screens are comfy.
The toilets are a little worse for wear, the gents was broken when I visited.
The cafe is perfectly fine but doesn’t have a lot of character. Could do with a refurb, maybe?
I saw "To Catch a Thief". It's not Hitchcock's best effort, but entertaining nonetheless, and made better by the "big screen" experience at The Filmhouse. So much nicer than the Vue: the seating is more comfortable, and you can get food and drinks without leaving...More
The Filmhouse is located too conveniently right next to our bus stop, so we often drop in for a quick drink, which usually ends up with at least one bottle!
Reasonable prices, particularly the house wine. Food looked good, but we've only ever had dessert....More
Please can you list more ingredients on the menu. I avoid anything with chillies and olives but even when not listed the salads come overloaded with olives. I told the staff I was intolerant to anything in the tomato family and requested no tomatoes on...More
We attended a screening from the Edinburgh International Film Festival here. It was great! Really glad we did!! It is a great venue with comfy old seats. The Lobby was a little small but that always seems to happen when you are bringing a festival...More
First visit was impressed with comfort on this cinema. Great price as for 2 including one concession were only £9 for afternoon movie. Didn't eat or drink but cafe bar looked very busy and popular would recommend visit x
I personally dont know of any other UK cinema that has the range and depth of international films that this has. Art house cinema at its best.
That said it is still a small and welcoming convivial space. With a busy foyier and a host...More
It's quirky, a bit shabby, the toilets have always been crap, and the food isn't up to much, but I love this place and have been coming here very regularly for 35 years. You don't come here for the food and the toilets: you come...More
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
