We invite you to rediscover the magic of the big screen, with an exclusive and intimate experience taking viewers back to a bygone era of cinematic opulence. With just 48 seats, this truly remarkable place can be found tucked away deep beneath Edinburgh's famous Scotsman Hotel which straddles the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh, and has been carefully restored to offer a luxe take on the age old joy of a night at the Picture house.

Our varied film schedule includes a mixture of classic masterpieces, modern cult favourites and curated cultural content. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Say Hello To

The Scotsman Picturehouse

A luxury take on a big screen experience, expect 48 sumptuous leather armchair seats, nestled between individual tables and classic empire lamps. All seats benefit from their own power and USB points, and the screen benefits from a claret soft deep pile carpet throughout.

This very special venue is also available for exclusive hire, making it perfect for truly stand out private events. Check out our private hire section for more details on our corporate, wedding and leisure packages.

We are a little bit different here at The Picturehouse, in that we do not show lots of trailers before the feature film starts. For that reason, please ensure you are in your seat and ready to enjoy the movie at the start time advertised. We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before this time, so that you may enjoy the wonderful surroundings of our cinema, or indulge in a perfectly mixed cocktail or something sweet.
