As the Covid rules are changing, we are able to add two films to be be screened in May (with social distancing and masks). We will continue adding live gigs for the autumn so keep checking here. Live gigs are, of course, going to be governed by Covid regulations at the time.

In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend, Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. Not only that, when the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada, the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage of the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head. Rating 12, Runtime 106 mins, screened with subtitles
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. In our auditorium we don’t allow food and drink other than water so please only remove a mask if you are sipping water. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have access issues. If necessary we can seat people on the floor area without having to negotiate steps.
Tickets £7 full, £5 U16’s These must be booked in advance – click here to purchase
