Plans for Arthouse within new St. James Quarter

Located directly across the road from our sister organisation’s York Place Apartments, the New St. James Quarter renovations looks set to add another dimension to Edinburgh’s cultural identity.

There are plans for an Arthouse within the complex (formerly St. James Centre). The venue will not only act as a cinema but will also be used for live theatre and music concerts. Designers insist that this will not challenge Vue cinema within the Omni centre but act as a hub for cultural events such as the Fringe and the Edinburgh Film Festival. If you are planning on coming to Edinburgh in the future this will definitely be a must-see venue.
