Filmhouse is a world-class, three-screen independent cinema showing a wide range of films from all over the world, from quality crowd-pleasers and family films to esoteric arthouse works, via restored classics, retrospectives and themed seasons and festivals.

Our home at 88 Lothian Road is in a former church, which we took over in 1976 and commenced screenings at in 1978. At first we had only one 90-seat screen (now Cinema 2), accessed via a back door on Chuckie Pend, off Morrison Street, but by 1985 the restoration work was complete, and Cinema 1, the bar and the front doors were opened. Cinema 3 was added in 1997.

Filmhouse's programme includes around 700 films and events every year, and we can screen work digitally (in 2D and Active 3D) and from film, be it 35mm, 16mm or even 70mm. We frequently host Q&As and panel discussions, and our Education and Learning department offers a range of screenings, workshops, courses and events for all ages. All three cinemas are fully accessible, and we regularly screen films with audio description and hard-of-hearing subtitles. In 2012 we received a Go Shop Award from the Royal National Institute of Blind People, in recognition of our good practice.

As well as our three screens, we have a comfortable café bar, offering a wide range of freshly-prepared food, including vegetarian and award-winning vegan options, and a great selection of ales and wines. Drinks can be taken into the cinemas - just ask for a plastic glass!
