“Morningside Edinburgh Cinema”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

Even though I have lived in Edinburgh most of my life this was the 1st time I went to the Dominion Cinema and I have to say it beats the pants off the usual big name cinema's in this great city. The staff are friendly, the seats are leather recliners which were really comfy, the interior is art deco, I could go on and on about this place as I was really impressed. It's more expensive than your average cinema but Groupon do a lot of deals for this place so book when you can. You won't be disappointed coming her at all.

“Makes leaving your Home Cinema System worthwhile!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

A beautiful, art deco, independent cinema in Edinburgh. The Dominion now has four screens with comfy sofas and recliner seats and shows an excellent range of movies - from mainstream to the more eclectic. The staff are, without exception, excellent and get to know their customers very quickly. On one occasion I arrived for a movie just a couple of minutes before it was due to start. I ordered a coffee and the member of staff brought it in to me in the cinema, so I didn't miss the start of the film. It all adds up to a friendly, personal level of service which means I travel to the Dominion which is a couple of miles from my home, rather than go to the multiplex which is a couple of minutes away.

“Unique Cinema Experience that will leave you wanting more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

As other reviewers have pointed out The Dominion Cinema is located in the Morningside are of EDINBURGH and is indeed not in East Lothian. I first discovered the cinema through a daily deals site and have since been back on several occasions. Their main screens are filled with an array of comfy sofas and lazy boy chairs, it is literally the most comfortable cinema experience imaginable! The bar is well stocked with a good range of beers, ciders and wines. No more expensive than your usual cinema multiplex the most wonderful thing about The Dominion is the atmosphere it creates, comfy, cosy and welcoming there is more of a buzz among viewers and you feel more engrossed in the film. The Dominion is a perfect example of what is great about Independent cinemas, it is a must-do attraction in Edinburgh and is great for something different for a birthday/hen-do as you can book out your very own screen! If you haven't already been, you really are missing out!

This is an excellent independent family run cinema in Morningside which is an area of Edinburgh and not in East Lothian

“Excellent Cinema”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

Recently visited the Dominion Cinema in Newbattle Terrace Edinburgh (Morningside area). Screen three has only 12....yes 12 seats! it is very comfortable and we were supplied with Complimentary Pringles crisps and a bottle of water each. Reasonavle prices too at £10 per person.
The film was great also!! The best excellent hotel (or something like that). Stars including Judie Dench, Bill Nighy and Celia Imrie....Definately worth going to see.
