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!

Cinema Nairn, the community group reviving big screen films in the seaside town, are pulling back the velvet curtain to reveal a surprising sequel to November’s successful launch.

On Friday 8th January two movies will be screened – one of which will be totally free, as a way of saying thank you to the support received so far and to encourage even more people to take an interest in the project.

The venue will once more be Nairn Community Centre.

At 6.00pm families frazzled from Christmas and New Year and fretting about the return to school will be able to unwind with a big screen showing of “Toy Story” (rated U), the groundbreaking 1995 comedy that was the first feature film to use only computer animation.

The event is completely free with seats allocated on a first come first served basis. Doors will open at 5.30pm

Then at 8.00pm there will be a screening of the 2005 British comedy “Kinky Boots” (rated 12A), which has developed something of a cult following.
The film is based on a true story involving a dreamer from a small town who strikes it lucky in the boot business thanks to some rather exotic inspiration.

It has been described as 'Priscilla, Queen of the Desert' meets 'The Full Monty', full of stand-out performances and charming characters, and is guaranteed to banish the winter blues.

Tickets, priced £4.00 (£3.00 concessions), will be available from the Community Centre, Nairn Bookshop and iolaire photo:graphics (at the railway station).
