Belmont Filmhouse is currently operating a pod system in our cinema screens, keeping 1 seat between groups. This gives customers flexibility in choice of seating, but allows for separation from others as a COVID safety precaution. We'll be keeping this measure in place for now.

Scottish Government regulations continue to require everyone to wear a face covering whilst in the cinemas and while moving around the building. You can only remove your face covering if eating and drinking. Please observe these rules to while in our cinemas and enjoying our films. Scottish Government regulation also still requires us to take customer contact details for Test and Protect.

We want you to know that we’ll continue to approach all our decisions with the wellbeing of our staff and customers in mind. Although, for now, most indoor restrictions have now been lifted by Government, we’ll continue to take our remaining measures seriously until we feel it appropriate to take further steps. We appreciate your support and patience.


  • Please wear a face covering in the cinema screens, within our foyers and while moving around the building. You have to continue to wear your mask while watching the film but can take them off if you’re eating or drinking. 
  • We are operating a socially distanced seating plan in our screens, using 'pods' designed to keep separate households or groups apart.

  • We have clear social distancing signage and floor markings in place to keep you right.
