Visitors will be able to order drinks and food to their seats, and lounge on plush velvet sofas and armchairs while they watch the latest cinema releases.

George Everett, Venue Manager of Everyman Cinema, said he was “excited” to open the new venue, and added: "I think this is the best Everyman cinema we’ve done.”

Level 5 will also host two performance spaces, which will be utilised during the Fringe and Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Martin Perry, the Project Director for the St James Quarter, said: "Up until this point, we’ve shown the public the shopping galleria and the car parking.

"They’ve seen restaurants and shops [...] – but this is where the rest of the Quarter comes to life.”
