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!

In 2012 Cinema Nairn presented Anthony Baxter's disturbing documentary about the Balmedie golf course near Aberdeen in the award winning 'You've Been Trumped'. A Dangerous Game is the fascinating follow-up where Baxter return to Menie to see how things have gone since the course opened and further investigates the disturbing aspects of the development. The film also looks at the broader context of luxury golf developments worldwide and at their impact on the often fragile environment of the area where they are constructed.
There is also an interview with Donald Trump, which no doubt will be very interesting!
Friday 24th July at Nairn Community & Arts Centre - starts at 7.30pm
