Great experience to watch this film with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra performing the soundtrack! We had great seats and I'm really pleased we didn't scrimp and go for limited visibility seats since we had a great view of he whole screen and the orchestra

Went with my wife to see and here the Moscow philharmonic orchestra on 28/05/17. Absolutely stunning performances. Acoustics in the Usher Hall are great, no echo or reverberations. Seating is good in the stalls with plenty of leg room. We will certainly return!

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
