The Film House is a friendly independent cinema, although not quite as art house or obscure as it seems to think it is. Still, in Edinburgh that scene just doesn't seem to exist, and it's a good option if you want to avoid the crowds and childen at the mainsteam cinemas.
The theatres here are superb - a huge screen for new releases, a more intimate space where they show other stuff.
The only downside really is the cafe/bar area. Where they could have put in a space where you'd want to spend a whole evening, meeting new friends who share an interest, it instead feels a lot like a student cafeteria. Handy place to meet up, not a great place to hang out.
