The Edinburgh Playhouse has had a colourful history. Designed by Glasgow architect,
John Fairweather as a variety theatre, it was largely modelled on the Roxy Theatre
in New York, but caught up in the new craze sweeping the country, it opened as a
cinema on August 12th 1929 with the 'talkie' The Doctor's secret. Owned by
the MacGuire family, it remained a cinema for 40 years until it fell victim to the
cinema slump in 1973.
