Cinema Staff – The Scotsman Picturehouse

As a company we are eagerly anticipating the launch of our new venue, The Scotsman Picturehouse. Housed within The Scotsman Hotel, our brand new cinema will be an intimate setting with one bespoke screen and beautiful individual seats. Equipped with its own bar, the theatre will be Edinburgh’s most opulent cinema experience.

Opening next month, the carefully refurbished space has been painstakingly restored to reveal original detailing hid deep within the historic building. The result is a truly captivating 41 seater theatre, where soft scarlet leather seats and twinkling table lights sit underneath a canopy of a beautiful corniced arched ceiling.

A robust film schedule will include a mixture of classic masterpieces, modern cult favourites, curated cultural content such as ballets, operas and more. The boutique theatre will also be available for exclusive hire and private use, making it perfect for truly stand out weddings, corporate events, and more.
