The Cameo is a small independent picture house, where you can catch not only the latest films but also indie flicks, classics, late night horror and morning children’s shows.
Opened in 1914, only oddments of the original cinema remains, yet the overall feel is still of the kind of cinema your grandparents might have visited.
The quirky little bar is one we visit sometimes, even when we’re not going to see a movie.
Converted from the disused St Thomas’s Church, the Filmhouse is home to the world’s oldest continually running film festival, the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Specialising in arthouse movies, foreign films and second-run specials, Filmhouse is very much part of the Edinburgh arts scene. There are mini festivals throughout the year, often including talks with actors and directors.
There’s a very lively cafe and bar serving pre-film meals, with vegetarian and vegan options, and a good range of Scottish beers.
A standard multiplex cinema with a choice of expensive popcorn, carbonated drinks and noisy sweets.
