Scottish Cinemas and Theatres

Listed Cinemas

A reasonably complete table of all known cinemas in Scotland that currently hold listed building status.
The number in brackets refers to the date they were added to the statutory list, and clicking on the date links to the Historic Environment Scotland official description, while clicking on the cinema name will bring up the Scottish Cinemas description of each site. A few also have links to the relevant local authority online planning applications list for that building where available.

As of January 2011, Scotland has 7 A-listed, 56 B-listed, and 24 C-listed cinema buildings.
