The Dominion Cinema is an independent Streamline Moderne cinema located in the Edinburgh suburb of Morningside. It was opened on 31 January 1938. It was designed by architect Thomas Bowhill Gibson in an Art Deco style.

Since then the cinema has been closed three times; in 1972, 1980 and 1998, each time to add more seats and cinemas. The cinema still runs today as a four-screen venue, and in 1993 it was protected as a category B listed building.
