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 in 2010, and with the help of the Nairn Community & Arts Centre and all our followers it has gone from strength to strength.

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!

Remaining films for 2015:

Friday 27th November: Kon Tiki (2013) PG13 (111 mins) 7.30pm

The fantastic story of legendary explorer Thor Heyerdal's epic 4,300-mile crossing of the Pacific on a balsawood raft in 1947, in an effort to prove that it was possible for South Americans to settle in Polynesia in pre-Columbian times. Voted as Best Film in the 2014 Inverness Film Festival.

Monday 7th December: Brave (2012) PG (95 mins) 2pm Matinee

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).
