Great atmosphere. Wonderful architecture. Always friendly staff. Great mix of films, classic and new releases. Famed for its annual silent cinema festival.

What does the Hippodrome offer? It's Scotland's only surviving purpose-build cinema and it's been beautifully restored. It offers a wonderful range of films: all the current popular ones that you'd expect a good cinema to show plus Saturday morning screenings for kids, Monday morning screenings with a cuppa, live-streamed National Theatre plays, Singalonga musicals, and even a Silent Film festival. It has such a great atmosphere. The staff are tremendous. You can go with a gang of friends for Singalonga Sound of Music or just trundle down there by yourself - it will always feel comfortable. We're so lucky to have it nearby!

Forget the industrial cinema complexes in their retail parks and their Blade Runner atmosphere. The Hippodrome provides the environment in which films really should be enjoyed. From its lovely building to it's friendly, knowledgeable staff the Hippodrome feels like a real cinema the minute you step into the bijou foyer. Thiose who feel overwhelmed by the ear busting noise in the complexes will appreciate the quality sound system which doesn't make you wish you had brought your ear plugs. Sit back and relax in the comfortable surroundings and think how lucky you are that cinemas like this still exist.
