Latest news – Hall reopens for film

HALL LATEST EVENTS

On Saturday Dec 5th we will show our first film under Covid restrictions and then review this experiment. Covid prevention measures will include the auditorium being set up for social distancing with a one way system.  Regarding face coverings we will follow the Scottish government guidance namely - it is mandatory to wear face coverings in cinemas, although there are exemptions for certain people and it is a reasonable excuse to remove a face covering when you need to eat and drink. If you wear a face visor/shield you are asked to also wear a face covering as a visor is not considered to offer sufficient protection.

If you are coming as separate bubbles please book your tickets separately. For example if you have 4 tickets in one booking we will sit you all together. Please let us know (via uhallpromo@gmail.com) if you have access issues. If necessary we can seat people on the floor area without having to negotiate steps.

All bookings must be made online and in advance - see the ticket booking link in each listing. You do not need to print out your reference – we will just ask for your name. If you buy 4 tickets (which is the maximum) we would expect you to all sit together without social distancing. It will not be possible to purchase tickets on the door. If you need to contact us about your booking use email and send to uhallpromo@gmail.com

You will notice that ticket prices have gone up due to the small maximum size of the audience, but we are absorbing the ticket booking fee with wegottickets.com so you won't have to pay it. Please note as well that - as per our usual policy - all films will be screened with subtitles.

And please see the details below for the free online event on Friday 13th November with three brilliant local storytellers . The links are there in the write-up

Elephant Sessions (music) plus Kitty Macfarlane Sat. 18th Nov, 8pm

Saturday, November 18, 2017, 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Nominated as Live Act of the Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2016, fiery Highland five-piece Elephant Sessions are a musical powerhouse, welding  grooves and guitar attack with quicksilver fiddle/mandolin melodies. The group fuses rich folk and trad influences with rock, funk and electronica in an instantly captivating danceable blend. Renowned for breathtaking live shows throughout the UK and Europe  with appearances at Glastonbury, Denmark’s Tønder and a sold out headline show at Celtic Connections 2017. 

“Outstanding levels of innovation and inventiveness” FolkWords

The band will be supported by Kitty Macfarlane – a singer songwriter from Somerset. Her lyrics combine honest snapshots of humanity with the bigger questions that have connected minds and voices for centuries. Kitty’s songs are charged with a sense of place – more often than not her home of Somerset. From questions of global belonging and rights to land, to songs of the anecdotal everyday; music that reflects today’s environmental issues and the clockwork passage of humans, creatures, even drifting continents, across our planet. Her debut EP, Tide & Time, received outstanding reviews and national airplay on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show and Tom Robinson’s show on BBC6Music, and Kitty has been selected by PRS as a recipient of the Lynsey de Paul prize for 2017.
