Ever wanted to use film and film making more in your classroom? We will be re-establishing our Teacher Advisory Groups (TAGS) for primary and secondary to help shape what we offer local schools, teachers and pupils. Whether it’s CLPL sessions, film-making workshops or bespoke screenings linked to your next topic – we want your input in shaping our programme for 2018-19. Come along for coffee, cake and chat – and even some comp tickets! Please book your place by emailing Flip Kulakiewicz at education@cmi-scotland.co.uk


Black Panther

Chadwick Boseman and co-stars in Black Panther

Wednesday 9 May, 10am • £3/free for teachers, 134min, 12A, suitable for S1 upwards, Media Studies, Modern Studies

Marvel's box-office smash, the eighteenth installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is a landmark film in the history of representation on screen, and fuses an action-packed, entertaining story with thought-provoking references to colonialism, foreign aid, diplomacy and race relations. As Time magazine summarised: 'Marvel's newest film is about what it means to be black in both America and Africa - and, more broadly, the world.' TRAILER

Love, Simon

Group of high school students

Thursday 24 May, 10am • £3 / free for teachers, 110min, Certificate 12A, Health & Wellbeing

A special screening to commemorate the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia.

Fairly certain that he's the only gay student at his high school, 17-year-old Simon Spier keeps his sexuality under wraps from his friends and family. Things get complicated when an anonymous classmate - 'Blue' - comes out online. Exchanging messages, a tentative relationship begins to develop between them....but will Simon ever discover Blue's true identity? A heartfelt and charming exploration of LGBT teenagers coming out in the modern world. TRAILER

Group Discounts

Kids at a screening

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

Kids on a projection tour

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 £75 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.
