I am lucky enough to live fairly close to this place.It is such a wonderful place to watch films. Staff always look after you and seats so nice to sit on. Every film you could think of has been played here and I have watched most of them. Please don't ever change.

We eventually diagnosed this aroma. ..At least... More

This cinema is a family run business, it's a great place to visit. All the staff are very pleasant, you get shown to your seat with a young lady with a torch. None of the stumbling around in the dark that a well known cinema chain makes you do! I will definitely visit again.

Most enjoyable cinema experience I’ve had. Super comfy seats without compromising the view or increasing the price. Makes going to the cinema feel like a “treat” again instead of a run of the mill day out. Would opt for the Dominion over any other cinema in Edinburgh.

Absolutely brilliant, and would recommend over Cineworld/Odeon every time. Shows most big releases, unlike many independent cinemas. Tickets cost £10.95 (realistically, they're £11.65 due to a 70p online booking fee per ticket - if you're planning on seeing a film in the first week or two after release you'll need to book), which is marginally more expensive than Cineworld (£10),...

I got a great Groupon for this and it looked like the perfect occasion - I had heard that the cinema very good and pretty expensive. It was absolutely amazing: leather couches, little tables, great screen and sound resolution, huge bar (snacks, soft and alcoholic drinks, ice cream available), everything very well decorated - all very chic, I loved it!

This is, without doubt, the best cinema I have ever visited. Why cram yourself into normal, uncomfortable cinema seats, when you can curl up on a sofa in front of the big screen? It's a bit more expensive than other places, but definitely worth it, especially with complementary Pringles in the bargain.
