Cameo Picturehouse


The Cameo is one of the oldest cinemas in Scotland

The Cameo Cinema, formerly known as the King's Cinema since its opening in 1914, underwent a transformative refurbishment and name change in 1949 by owner Jim Poole. This marked the birth of Edinburgh's first art house cinema, which has since become a significant venue for the renowned Edinburgh International Film Festival.

The Cameo Cinema boasts three screens, each dedicated to showcasing arthouse films. It also offers a bar that can be utilized for private screenings or special showings for cast and crew members. With the exception of Screen 3, all screens at The Cameo offer wheelchair access, ensuring inclusivity for all moviegoers. Additionally, adapted toilets are available on the premises to accommodate individuals with special needs.

For those arriving by train, Haymarket Train Station is conveniently located within a 15-minute walk from the cinema, while Waverley Station is approximately a 30-minute walk away.
