CINEMA NAIRN is a small group of volunteers who love watching films on the big screen, and who wanted to see full-time cinema return to Nairn. It started over four years ago, and with the help of the Nairn Community & Arts Centre, it has gone from strength to strength, showing nearly 65 films to ever increasing audiences.

Over the years our programme of films has been praised for the eclectic mix of old and new and for our success at introducing the local community to hidden gems that they might have missed. We aim to appeal to a broad spectrum of interests and will once again show contemporary hits and old black and white classics, as well as films with a Scottish slant. Add to the mix two musicals, a documentary and two wonderful foreign language films, and we believe that the 2014 will be seen as our best programme yet.

Films are screened in the Nairn Community & Arts Centre on King Street (just off the A96), and occasionally in the Little Theatre in Fishertown.

Admission is £5.00 for adults and £3.00 for those under 18 years of age. There is also a loyalty scheme - so get your card stamped each time you come and you'll get the sixth film free!

Each year we screen up to four matinees to which people of any age are welcome to join us for a reduced price of £2.50, and with the added bonus of tea and home bakes, it's a great way to spend a Monday afternoon!

Untouchable: this Friday's film from Cinema Nairn

Come along to the Community Centre this Friday to see the latest offering from Cinema Nairn.  The synopsis could lead you to think this true story of a quadriplegic man and his wacky carer was one of tragedy and sadness.  But director (Oliver Nakache) turns it into an enriching story of human resilience with a great sense of humour and fantastic performances from the cast.  

Another hidden gem.  Don't let the subtitles put you off, this really is a film that everyone should see!
