Edinburgh has a wealth of entertainment available, with live theatre, and a massive selection of cinemas, bars and restaurants, featuring live entertainment. Edinburgh, being a university town, offers a large range of clubs and entertainment slanted towards the large youth market. Edinburgh has new clubs and nightclubs opening all the time, the latest being the luxurious City Nightclub in Edinburgh's Market Street. One of the newer arrivals on the Edinburgh entertainment scene is the Omniplex at Greenside Edinburgh, only a few minutes from the east end of Princes Street, Edinburgh. A welcome arrival for local Edinburgh people, and visitors alike to Edinburgh, is the new Warner Village Cinema. This is a 12 plex cinema entertainment complex featuring a Warner Gold Section. The Edinburgh Warner Village Gold features a bar and the facility of ordering drinks and snacks to be delivered to your cinema seat. The Edinburgh Warner Village is the first large cinema in the true Edinburgh city centre. Film buffs will be pleased to know that at the south west side of Edinburgh, in the Morningside area, we have a unique cinema complex. This is The Edinburgh Dominion Cinema, a family owned cinema with an original Art Deco frontage - there is even a restaurant and a bar in this unique Edinburgh cinema. Edinburgh also has the Edinburgh Filmhouse Cinema in Lothian Road, which is in the west end of Edinburgh, providing excellent cinema entertainment and showing the latest, and in the case of the Filmhouse Cinema "art house" and specialist films for the connoisseur. Edinburgh's Cameo Cinema is also worth checking out for films which you may not find on general release.

Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre (once the largest cinema in Britain), situated at the east end of The City of Edinburgh, is the largest theatre in Britain, entertaining 3000 people. The Edinburgh Playhouse entertainment specialty is large musicals, such as typically Miss Saigon and musicals by the likes of Andrew Lloyd Webber. Edinburgh is lucky to have a late Victorian masterpiece of a theatre in the Edinburgh Kings Theatre in the Tollcross area of the city, providing popular entertainment for theatre fans. Entering this theatre is like going back in time, to a period when all theatres had ornamentation of a manner which transported the patrons into a luxury world - even if it was for only one night's entertainment!
We welcome to Edinburgh Castle entertainment section the Edinburgh Party Bus and Katie Targett Adams, the Edinburgh based harpist, the City Nightclub, and Sportsters Bar, three good additions to the Edinburgh Entertainment section, and make sure to check out the newly revamped Edinburgh Pubs website.

Jools Holland’s Jam House comes to Edinburgh!

Edinburgh Jam House news Fri. 18th. November - Jools Holland will not be in attendance at the opening of The Jam House Edinburgh as he will be appearing with his Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orchestra on Friday 18th. November in Cheltenham at The Centaur Cheltenham Racecourse and on Saturday 19th November Jools and the Orchestra will be in Portsmouth at The Guildhall.

Jools Holland’s vision of the best in live music, great food and good times will be a reality in Edinburgh as of Friday 18 th November 2005, as Jools and Luminar Leisure open The Jam House - a unique new entertainment venue in Scotland.
Based inside the 24,000sq ft former BBC Broadcasting House on Queen Street, the Jam House is a music club based on a similar American concept called House of Blues which can be found in LA and Chicago. The Jam House will have an 84 seat fine dining restaurant, bars, and most importantly, be fully equipped as a live venue, attracting local bands and celebrity guest stars alike.
The Jam House concept began in 1999 as an amalgamation between Jools Holland and designer Neil Tibbatt.
Jools and Neil wanted to produce a night out which had elements of live music, fine dining and good times, encompassing a style of music club.
Jools Holland takes the prestigious title of musical director of the Jam House and Jools involvement ensures credibility and the very best live musical experience. Jools and his Rhythm ‘n’ Blues Orchestra will also play at the Jam House.
Jools said: 'I have always enjoyed the ambiance of the Jam House in Birmingham. When we play there it's a perfect place to swing the blues. Edinburgh is one of my favourite places in the world and I hope we can bring the same atmosphere to the Jam House there.'
Stephen Thomas , CEO of Luminar Leisure said: 'The Jam House is unique concept in Scotland and we are excited to be bringing it to Edinburgh - a city in which we believe it will flourish. The search is on for the cream of Scottish musical talent to play at the Jam House. Who knows - we may even find the Scottish Jools Holland.'
The Jam House has an intimate atmosphere for a live music venue favouring the ‘unplugged’ feel with more contact between artists and members of the public. There are no futuristic, technological lighting effects, just simple theatrical style focused on the artist and providing a live entertainment experience.
The theatrical element of the venue is enhanced by the fact that Neil Tibbatt has been able to use the small theatre inside the former BBC Broadcasting House which was once where performances were broadcast and recorded.
Former smaller recording studios have been opened up and will become bars and lounge areas, further using the space to fully encourage customers to appreciate the historical musicality of the venue. An a la carte dining experience allows customers to enjoy a blend of flavours from around the world and an inspired wine list enhances the choice and quality.
Neil Tibbatt says: 'Essentially the design concept is based on the philosophy behind the music and into the roots of blues and jazz and uses a lot of references to the symbolism surrounding these styles such as voodoo candles, wooden artefacts and eerie and quirky sculptures and artwork to create the atmosphere.'
Edinburgh artist David Begby is the designer of the Jam House logo, the angel motif, which can also be seen inside the venue in the angel sculpture, maintaining the theme.
The first Jam House venue, in Birmingham’s St Paul’s Square, was built inside a three storey Georgian building in the heart of the jewellery quarter, opposite St Paul ’s Church.
The Jam House has since hosted jazz, blues and rock artists and has featured performances from Chaka Khan, The Stylistics, The Specials, The Beat, Steve Gibbons, Buddy Greco, Pato Banton, Paul Carrack and of course, Jools Holland and his Rhythm ‘n’ Blues orchestra. Celebrity guests at the Jam House have included ex Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, Ocean Colour Scene, Noddy Holder who was the gravely voice frontman of Slade, the comedian Jasper Carrot and many others.

Wednesday 14th. Dec. 05 -The new King Kong movie opens nationwide tomorrow night and King Kong is one of the few movies I have really wanted to see for a long time. The critics who have seen King Kong have given the movie good reviews and I have just finished previewing the King Kong trailer on the Internet. Visually Naomi Watts would appear to be a good choice as she bears a striking resemblance to Fay Wray who starred in the original 1993 King Kong film. Peter Jackson is the same director who made the successful Lord of the Rings films and he used New Zealand to film King Kong, as he did with the Lord of the Rings movies. After looking at the trailer for King Kong I think Jackson made an excellent choice. Peter Jackson's remake of the original 1933 King Kong film i will shoot 37-year-old Naomi Watts to the top of fame's skyscraper.

Fay Wray was Ann Darrow -the original damsel in distress in the first King Kong film died last year at the age of 96.

Wednesday 8th. June 2005 - Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre - High Society Cole Porter's masterpiece opened on Monday night at the.Edinburgh Playhouse and the writer will be at the show tonight to review the show.. High Society is the musical that features some of Cole Porter's most famous songs immortalised by Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby in the 1956 film High Society which also starred Grace Kelly. The famous Cole Porter High Society songs include” Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”.” True Love” and "Well, Did You Evah” High Society is at The Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre until Saturday 11 th. June 2005 so hurry along and get your High Society tickets from the Playhouse Theatre box office now! - Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre 24 hour telephone bookings phone 0870 606 3424

Thursday 9th. June - I enjoyed High Society last night and I recommend that you get along to the Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre and enjoy a lighthearted musical evening with lot's of classic songs that you will know well. Liza Goddard is High Society's big name, and Liza is cast as the mother of the bride, Katherine Kingsley is Tracy Lord - the lead role, and she is excellent. Katherine handles the slower ballads exceptionally well, and she can camp it up with the best of them as she proves in the show's big number Let's Misbehave. Ria Jones deserves mention as her singing voice is sensational and 27 year old black dancer Nina Kristofferson is notable as one of the servants-you probably will leave the show humming.” Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” it's that catchy!

Warner Village Hosts Scottish Premiere of X-MEN 2

Dundee-born actor Brian Cox was the famous face at last night's charity premiere of the film X-MEN 2 in Edinburgh.

The X-MEN 2 film is the first of this summer's big budget releases and Cox plays the arch villain William Stryker, which stars the gorgeous Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman.

The proceeds of last night’s Scottish premiere at the Edinburgh Warner Village Cinemas will go towards building a £17 million research centre in Cox’s home town of Dundee, which will work towards curing diseases such as diabetes and malaria.

Edinburgh Castle Biz spotted the Scottish comedian Fred MacAulay amongst others.
