The cinema shows a wide range of current new releases movies with the highest quality sound reproduction on it’s 13 screens.
Omni Vue is fully equipped with all the latest projection and audiovisual technologies, and has invested in the most modern subtitling and audio description technology systems available, giving those with hearing and sight impairments an opportunity to enjoy the cinema experience too.
The building itself is very similar to the Festival Theatre with it’s huge glass facade. At the front of the building is a huge 20ft sculpture of two giraffes made out of scrap metal. This is the work of Scottish artist Helen Denerley and was installed in 2005.
The cinema is just a few yards from the Edinburgh Playhouse and there are many good restaurants and bars in the area.
