Eden Court Theatre and Cinema

Bishops Rd, Inverness, The Scottish Highlands, IV3 5SA

The basics

Spread across three interconnected buildings, Eden Court is the largest combined arts center in Scotland. It has two theaters—the Empire seats 869 and the One Touch 275—as well as two multi-purpose studios, two cinemas (typically showing arthouse films), and three art galleries. You can also view permanent public art inside and outside the building. You’ll also find a shop, café/bar, and restaurant. To check the schedule, pick up a program from the foyer or check the website.

As the modern building is an attraction in itself, Eden Court is a typical stop on walking tours as well as a stop on hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tours—ideal for those with limited time who want to check off as many sights as possible.
