In 1979 an old boarded-up Church became the home of a new venture in cultural cinema. A 100 seat auditorium (now cinema 2) accessed via Morrison Street Lane was the fairly inauspicious start. The listed front of the building was to remain inaccessible for some years to come.
By 1985 things had been transformed. A new 280 seat auditorium and bar were added and the front entrance opened up. That was how things remained until 1997 when the functions hall was transformed into a third screen.
Since its inception Filmhouse has been the home of the Edinburgh International Film Festival and has been host to many film luminaries such as Martin Scorsese, Andrei Tarkovsky, Sean Connery and James Mason.
The present Filmhouse has 3 cinemas which are open to the public seven days a week. Cinema One screens the latest international releases and presents special events with guests talking about their work in different branches of the film industry.

One of the best arthouse cinemas in the UK

The Filmhouse is a gem make no mistake about it - certainly one of the best independent cinemas in the UK even more so if you're outside London. The focus of the Edinburgh Film Festival it also throughout the year benefits from an outstanding programme of independent world cinema with imaginative themes and programming, after screening discussions, mini festivals of film, and it also has a comfortable bar with an outstanding selection of quality beers as well as draught real ales and a good selection of reasonably priced food with quite a few vegetarian options.Report this

A great little art House cinema. From front of building you wouldnt think this was a cinema, but once inside your find a great little cafe/bar + three screens showing all manner of films from blockbusters to low budget horrors in every format known (vhs-dlp) In addtion to films they have special guests like directors/cast etc and have festivals such as the annual Dead By Dawn Horror fest in April Its advisable to book in advance or at least turn up a bit early as showings do sell out on a regular basis All screens feature stadium seating and are comfortable but could do with a little more leg room (as most could), but overall a fantastic place to see a filmReport this

If you prefer independent, or foreign films to the latest blockbuster then this is the place for you! Inside is like what I consider to be the classic old style cinema. They have limited screens, and the screen rooms are not that big, but depending on the films on show they will be sold out! They also have a good cafe, with reasonable priced food.Report this
