Group Discounts

Primary screening at Filmhouse

We recognise that many teachers are finding it increasingly difficult  to bring groups to see films during class time, so to address this we offer 25% off tickets to public screenings at Filmhouse when bringing a group of ten or more pupils.

This discount applies to concession price tickets for pupils and full  price tickets for accompanying adults – details of our ticket prices for public screenings can be found here. Tickets should be booked through our box office on 0131 228 2688.

We hope that this discount will allow school groups to attend a range of  films at more suitable times. Please note that at public screenings we  expect all members of the audience to respect those around them, which  includes switching off mobile phones.

Projection Tours

Come and learn how cinema works, with a tour of our projection box and a  screening of short animations from the London International Animation Festival. Tours cost £90 for a class of up to 33 pupils, and are  suitable for P4-S2.

Please note that, although we strive to make Filmhouse as accessible as  possible, this tour is of a non-public area of the building which is up  two flights of stairs, with no lift.
