From the second we walked in the door we fell in love with the Dominion Cinema. It's very cute. I couldn't fault the staff. The table service was great, the food was lovely. The recliner sofas were very comfortable. Just as well the film was amazing too! 2 free small tubs of Pringles and 4 Celebrations chocolates were waiting for... More

My partner suggested an evening out starting with a visit to a cinema. When we checked our options I was immediately hooked with the review for the Dominion. So much so we were both overcome with the cinema that we were less concerned over what was showing. We could not wait for something we could choose to watch, it became... More

There is no place like the Dominion Cinema, it is just the best experience from start to finish from the staff who work there to the pure luxury of the Cinema and the ridiculously comfortable leather sofas. You'll never go to any other Cinema after visiting the Dominion.

The Dominion is an independent, family-run cinema in Edinburgh's Morningside area. We've been regulars for quite some time now; we love it! I have a bad back and I can't usually sit in "regular" cinema seats for the full duration of a movie without getting very sore and having to take a lot of painkillers to get me through the... More

Lovely little place with a great feeling certainly keeps to the olden age and was lots of fun. Staff where very attentive and friendly. We didn't get to experience the... More

Always like this cinema as it's comfortable and we usually go as a treat for a film we really want to see as we don't always go to the cinema that often. Went to see trainspotting and went VIP. Everything was great except the film time stated 7pm and came on at 8.05 a would have been good to know... More

We have a 45 minute bar and food service for our patrons to enjoy prior to the film beginning at 8pm. Apologies for the misunderstanding, we hope that we can welcome you... 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

'First Class', 'Gold Class' Nice comfortable seats and drinks served to you at your seat..
