Cockburn Response

The Cockburn supports this application associated with re-establishing Filmhouse.

The proposed improvements and essential internal maintenance projects  should make the Filmhouse a more comfortable, accessible and welcoming venue for people to come together to watch films and to talk about them.

Upgrading seating, improving movement across foyer areas and the building more generally, refurbishing  toilets, improving support for the less able and general redecoration are all essential steps towards re-establishing the Filmhouse after a difficult hiatus in its availability to Edinburgh residents and visitors.
