Scotland's Largest Cinema

The Festival Theatre’s auditorium provides a unique viewing experience and is the largest digital cinema in Scotland. 

The screen was first used at the Festival Theatre for the opening of the 2010 Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF), showing The Illusionist. The theatre has since hosted a number of gala events and screenings as part of the EIFF, such as the UK Premiere of Brave.

In addition to films, we often host live and encore screenings of performances from the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Paris Opera, La Scala and Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company.  Browse our full listings for more.
