“Going to the pictures”

Whether it’s Star Wars, James Bond or a romantic love story, everyone loves a good film. While you have to have a reasonable level of English to watch most of them, there is no doubt that “going to the pictures” (as we say in Scotland) is a good way to improve your English.

We know that many of our students like going to the movies and there are lots to choose from in Edinburgh. The main ones are listed below, with a link to each website so you can see what films are being shown.

Cineworld, Fountain Park, close to the city centre.

Vue, also close to the city centre, in Leith Street.

The Dominion, in Morningside, also close to the city centre.

Cameo is just on the edge of the city centre.

The Odeon, Edinburgh, is in Lothian Road, just a few minutes walk from Princes Street (the main street in Edinburgh city centre.

Edinburgh Filmhouse is also in Lothian Road.

There are other cinemas too, so if you like films then you’ll be spoiled for choice when you come to study with Global School of English in Edinburgh.
