Everything was great except the film time stated 7pm and came on at 8.05 a would have been good to know... More

This is my favourite cinema in Edinburgh so we called in to watch this incredible movie. The best film we've seen in a long time and I'm an avid cinema goer! The ONLY thing that ruined this trip was that in the quiet poignant moments we could hear the loud rumbling movies from the other 'rooms'/films around us. It didn't... More

Booked seats in 'Gold Class' to see T2 Trainspotting last night. I do like the business model the dominion management have adopted.. 'First Class', 'Gold Class' Nice comfortable seats and drinks served to you at your seat.. We sat about three rows from the rear in cinema 1 in an area that may or may not have previously been separate... More

Just watched T2 Trainspotting here tonight experiencing the 1st class seats. We have been going to this cinema for years & they have now improved the experience even more. No other cinema in Edinburgh competes.

I don't... More

We booked a reclining sofa to watch T2 Trainspotting on the day it was released - enjoyed a bottle of wine from the bar whilst watching the film in comfort. Friendly staff, good service, a great atmosphere. Thoroughly recommended.

Had the best night ever here last night, watching a film with the First Class service at the Dominion. Well worth the extra cash as this is a brilliant cinematic experience! Even if visiting as a tourist, would highly recommend!
