Scotland: The Scotsman Hotel in Edinburgh has opened a 48-seater in-house cinema.

The hotel, which is set in the former headquarters of The Scotsman newspaper, has transformed an old news room into the cinema, complete with Edwardian cornice-work, wood panelling and bespoke red leather and velvet armchairs and sofas, each lit by table lamps.

Scotsman Picturehouse will screen a variety of films from classics the modern hits and curated cultural content such as ballets and operas.

The cinema is part of a multi-million pound refurbishment of The Scotsman Hotel, which was brought out of liquation by the G1 Group in 2017, and took around 16 weeks to complete.

Mike Wiles, operations manager from the cinema division of G1, said: "The Scotsman Picturehouse will appeal to people who want more from a cinema experience. Whether you want to combine a movie with brunch or afternoon tea, bring your clients to a bespoke corporate screening or enjoy the best seats in the house at an opera, this beautiful venue is offers something stylish."
