Two great films for December

First up on the Friday 17th is "The Boys Are Back" - Joe Warr (Clive Owen) is a British sports writer who lives in Australia with his second wife, Katy (Laura Fraser) and his young, eccentric son Artie (Nicholas McAnulty). When Katy gets diagnosed with cancer and passes away, Joe copes with the responsibilities of being a single parent with the help of his beloved wife's spirit.

His teenaged son from his first marriage, Harry (George MacKay) who feels abandoned in the UK with his mother who hates him uses Katies death as an opportunity to try and build a relationship with his father and comes to visit him in Australia for a while. Although Harry is at first unnerved by the lack of discipline in the house, he eventually warms up and forms a strong bond with Artie whilst struggling with his relationship with Joe.

When Joe is forced by work to leave the two of them alone in the house for a night, local teenagers throw a house party at the house against both boys' will.

With the house ransacked, Harry flies back to England. Joe and Artie come after him and after a while, Harry is convinced to move to Australia full time.

Joe has been brought closer to both of his sons, but continues to raise them with the same lack of discipline as before.

Then on Saturday 18th we are screening "The Pink Panther" - As a child, Princess Dala is given, by her father, the largest diamond in the world, in which if you stare into it can be seen a "Pink Panther" hence the name. However, now as a young woman, rebels in her home country have seized power and are demanding the return of the jewel.

Dala relaxes on holiday in an exclusive skiing resort but noted British playboy, Sir Charles Lytton is in town. He is secretly "The Phantom" - infamous jewel thief who has eyes on the Pink Panther. Charles's playboy nephew George follows to the resort in an attempt to steal it and blame it on "The Phantom", not knowing that it's his uncle.

On the Phantom's trail is Inspector Jacques Clouseau, from France, and his wife who, unknowingly to Jacques, is the lover of Charles and helper in the Phantom's crime.

Jacques tries to stop the attempts but he is so clueless that when several attempts are made at a fantasy-dress party, Jacques looks everywhere but the right place...

Thursday, 25 November 2010

And the winner is...

"The Boys Are Back" with nine votes secured a winning place over "Arsenic And Old Lace" that polled eight votes with "Local Hero" and "Roman Holiday" each attracting seven votes, forty votes were cast in all which is just about 50% of the fans.

And this months film is...


(Cert 15) 1999 127 minutes

Carl, a fisherman in the waters off Washington state, has been found dead, drowned in his own nets, but with a serious head wound. Was he murdered? Post-war anti-Japanese sentiments are still running high, and a murder suspect is found in the local Japanese-American community in the form of Kabuo, another fisherman, who had a grudge against Carl's family.

Vote for the Christmas movie - you decide...

Here's your chance to have a say in what movie is screened by Cinema Nairn on 17th December 2010. Just use the polling gadget here on our blog to cast your vote. The film choices are outlined below:

In The Loop (2009) Cert 15
The US President and UK Prime Minister fancy a war. But not everyone agrees that war is a good thing. The US General Miller doesn't think so and neither does the British Secretary of State for International Development, Simon Foster. But, after Simon accidentally backs military action on TV, he suddenly has a lot of friends in Washington, DC. If Simon can get in with the right DC people, if his entourage of one can sleep with the right intern, and if they can both stop the Prime Minister's chief spin-doctor Malcolm Tucker rigging the vote at the UN, they can halt the war. If they don't... well, they can always sack their Director of Communications Judy, who they never liked anyway and who's back home dealing with voters with blocked drains and a man who's angry about a collapsing wall.

The Boys Are Back (2009) Cert 12A is a confessional tale of fatherhood. It follows a witty, wisecracking, action-oriented sportswriter who, in the wake of his wife's death, finds himself in a sudden, stultifying state of single parenthood. Joe Warr throws himself into the only child-rearing philosophy he thinks has a shot at bringing joy back into their lives: "just says yes." Raising two boys - a curious six year-old and a rebel teen from a previous marriage -- in a household devoid of feminine influence, and with a lack of rules, life becomes exuberant, instinctual, reckless... and on the constant verge of disaster. The three multi-generational boys of the Warr household, father and sons alike, must each find their own way, however tenuous, to grow up.

A Fish Called Wanda (1988) Cert 15
Sexy American diamonds lover Wanda and her boyfriend Otto are in England to plot alongside George and Ken the robbery of a diamond collection. Wanda and Otto want the stolen diamonds for themselves, and inform the police about George not knowing that he has already moved the diamonds to another secret place. Wanda thinks the best way to find out is by getting close to George's lawyer - Archie Leach.

Local Hero (1983) Cert PG 
Oil billionaire Happer sends Mac to a remote Scotish villiage to secure the property rights for an oil refinery they want to build. Mac teams up with Danny and starts the negotiations, the locals are keen to get their hands on the 'Silver Dollar' and can't believe their luck. However a local hermit and beach scavenger, Ben Knox, lives in a shack on the crucial beach which he also owns. Happer is more interested in the Northern Lights and Danny in a surreal girl with webbed feet, Marina. Mac is used to a Houston office with fax machines but is forced to negotiate on Bens terms.

Roman Holiday (1953) Cert U
Princess Anne embarks on a highly publicized tour of European capitals. When she and her royal entourage arrive in Rome, she begins to rebel against her restricted, regimented schedule. One night Anne sneaks out of her room, hops into the back of a delivery truck and escapes her luxurious confinement. However, a sedative she was forced to take earlier starts to take effect, and the princess is soon fast asleep on a public bench. She is found by Joe Bradley, an American newspaper reporter stationed in Rome. He takes her back to his apartment. The next morning Joe dashes off to cover the Princess Anne press conference, unaware that she is sleeping on his couch! Once he realizes his good fortune, Joe promises his editor an exclusive interview with the princess.

Arsenic And Old Lace (1944) Cert U
Mortimer Bruster is a newspaperman and author known for his diatribes against marriage. We watch him being married at city hall in the opening scene. Now all that is required is a quick trip home to tell Mortimer's two maiden aunts. While trying to break the news, he finds out his aunts' hobby; killing lonely old men and burying them in the cellar. It gets worse. 

The Thin Man (1934) Cert U
After a four year absence, one time detective Nick Charles returns to New York with his new wife Nora and their dog, Asta. Nick re-connects with many of his old cronies, several of whom are eccentric characters, to say the least. He's also approached by Dorothy Wynant whose inventor father Clyde Wynant is suspected of murdering her step-mother. Her father had left on a planned trip some months before and she has had no contact with him. Nick isn't all that keen on resuming his former profession but egged-on by wife Nora, who thinks this all very exciting, he agrees to help out. He solves the case, announcing the identity of the killer at a dinner party for all of the suspects.

A chance to see a great British classic - The Railway Children

Those who haven't seen this movie before or those who haven't seen it in a while (or even those who have only ever seen it on television) should take the opportunity to watch this fantastic family film on the big screen. Kids of all ages welcome.

Based on the book by Edith Nesbit, the story concerns the Waterbury family who move to "Three Chimneys", a house near the railway, after the father who works at the Foreign Office, is imprisoned as a result of being falsely accused of selling state secrets to the Russians. The three children, Roberta (Bobbie), Peter and Phyllis, find amusement in watching the trains on the nearby railway line and waving to the passengers. They become friendly with Albert Perks, the station porter, and with the Old Gentleman who regularly takes the 9:15 down train. He is eventually able to help prove their father's innocence, and the family is reunited. The family take care of the Russian exile, Mr Szczepansky, who came to England looking for his family (later located) and Jim, the grandson of the Old Gentleman, who suffers a broken leg in a tunnel.
The theme of an innocent man being falsely imprisoned for espionage and finally vindicated might have been influenced by the Dreyfus Affair, which was a prominent worldwide news item a few years before the book was written.
Join us to watch The Railway Children at Nairn Community & Arts Centre on Friday 1st October at 5.30pm

A Canterbury Tale

Joan Noble (Cinema Nairn) refreshs the film goers following the movie
With over a hundred senior citizens in attendance 'A Canterbury Tale' proved to be a roaring success, those attending loved the film with many commented that it was the first time they had been to the pictures in decades!

The tea and homebaking afterwards added to the treat, a great big "Thank You" to all those that contributed and helped on the day - your support was instrumental in making the event such a success. It was very pleasing to see Cinema Nairn giving the community something it so clearly needed

Tuesday, 27 July 2010


The latest season of films from Cinema Nairn, the community group behind the revival of big screen entertainment in the seaside town, includes a celebration of life during wartime in a rural community and a documentary for music fans bereft at the lack of a jazz festival this summer.

For starters, youngsters and parents nearing the end of the summer holidays are invited to relax with the help of Jacques Tati, the legendary French slapstick comedian and director.

His debut film, ‘Jour de Fete’, from 1948 will be screened on 11 August at 2.00pm with a special under-18 ticket price of only £2.00 Hilarity is guaranteed as the town prepares for its annual gala day. One reviewer said of Tati: “He makes cycling along a tranquil country lane as spellbinding as if it were taking place on a high wire.”


August is normally the month of the Nairn International Jazz Festival but the event is taking a break this year. To ensure jazz fans get their fix Cinema Nairn is pleased to present ‘Let’s Get Lost’, the acclaimed documentary about trumpeter Chet Baker, on 27 August at 7.30pm.

Jason Rose of Cinema Nairn said: “Let’s Get Lost will be a big attraction for any music fan and indeed anyone intrigued by the Chet Baker story. He went from heartthrob to toothless addict almost overnight. The film’s director, Bruce Weber, has created not just a documentary but a piece of art. The way the images and music blend is astonishing and I can‘t wait to see it on the big screen.”


This summer marks the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and Cinema Nairn wanted to mark the efforts of those who served during the Second World War. ‘A Canterbury Tale’, which brilliantly recounts wartime life in a rural community, will be screened at 2.00pm on 13 September with tickets reduced to just £2.00

Sue Halliday of Cinema Nairn said: “We wanted to put on a film for an older audience in Nairn and rather than the obvious war movies we’ve gone for a beautiful story that focuses on those who were left behind and kept the country going. The film is open to all and the timing ensures members of Nairn’s lunch clubs can easily attend.”

A Canterbury Tale was directed and produced by Powell and Pressburger, who created such film gems as A Matter of Life and Death and I Know Where I’m Going.

Following the film complimentary tea and home baking will be served.


This year marks the 40th anniversary of The Railway Children and to help introduce this timeless and magical movie to the next generation Cinema Nairn has booked it for an early evening family-friendly screening on 1 October starting at 5.30pm.

As well as showing classics and forgotten gems Cinema Nairn is keen to screen recent releases, particularly those which some film fans miss on their mainstream release. The Hurt Locker, which earlier this year picked up six Oscars, will be shown on 29 October at 7.30pm. This thrilling account of a bomb disposal squad in Iraq was described by one reviewer as the most interesting, tense and suspenseful action film in years.

November’s film has a suitably wintry theme - Snow Falling on Cedars. This 1999 film was nominated for an Oscar and is one of the most atmospheric murder mysteries of recent years. It will be shown at 7.30pm on 20 November.

To decide which comedy fills the pre-Christmas slot on 17 December Cinema Nairn Fans will be invited to cast a vote. Details will be announced in the autumn.

And to round off the year there will be another screening aimed at families and younger film fans - The Pink Panther on Saturday 18 December at 2.00pm with under-18 tickets again reduced to just £2.00 This is the original (and best) outing from 1963 for gaffe-prone Inspector Clouseau.

More information about Cinema Nairn can be found on line at All screenings take place at Nairn Community Centre. Tickets are normally priced at £4.00 (£3.00 for under 18s) and before the 7.30pm films a bar is available from 7.00pm


The next film is Looking for Eric this Friday (30 July) at 7.30pm. Directed by Ken Loach it tells the touching and funny story of a postie in a crisis who gets advice from none other than French footballer Eric Cantona.

Tuesday, 20 July 2010

Change of title...

In a slight change to our programme we will now be screening 'Jour De Fete' instead of 'Mon Oncle' both Jacques Tati classics, the replacement is of a shorter running time which we feel might suit younger viewers.

Saturday, 17 July 2010

(Anyone) Looking For Eric?

The final film presented by Cinema Nairn before the next season of screenings (take a look at the calendar above) is the 2009 Ken Loach movie "Looking For Eric" on Friday 30th July. 

The plot revolves around a football fanatic postman whose life is descending into crisis. Looking after his granddaughter is bringing him into contact with his ex-wife, and his stepson is hoarding a gun for a local gangster. 

At his weakest moments, when he considers suicide, his hallucinations bring forth visits from his footballing hero, the famously philosophical Eric Cantona.

Penultimate film for this season 'Out Of Africa' - Friday 25th June

With just two films to go before our new season is upon us join us for Sydney Pollack's 'Out Of Afica' starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford.

Karen Blixen, a Danish woman, marries a friend for the title of Baroness and they move to Africa and start a coffee plantation. Things unfold when her husband begins cheating on her and is away on business often, so she's at home alone, working on the farm and bonding with two men she met in her first day in Africa. 

She eventually falls in love with the one, Denys Finch-Hatton and goes on safari and whatnot with him. Later, she begins to want more from him than the simple friendship/relationship they have and pushes marriage, but Denys still wants his freedom. By the end, she's gained a much better understanding and respect for the African culture than when she came.

He also meets the gorgeous aspirant actress Harmony Faith Lane, and finds that she was a friend of his childhood for whom he had a crush.

Shakespeare in Love which will be shown during the Nairn Book & Arts Festival will now be screened at 8.00pm. Modified posters are being distributed around the town.

Gone Fishing

As a result of some slight technical problems with 'Moon' we screened 'Gone Fishing' whilst the issues were resolved. However, for those that want to see this fantastic wee movie we will be showing it again before 'The Searchers' on Friday 30th April.

This thirteen minute short is an excellent example of what can be done in a smaller time frame, with a limited budget (£15,000) without compromising the story line or quality. 

Featuring well-known Scottish actor Bill Paterson it tells the tale of The touching story of a boy and old man coming to terms with bereavement through their shared love of fishing.  

One reviewer wrote this: 
"I cannot believe that so much pure excellence was crammed into less than 15 minutes of film. It's simply a masterpiece, lovingly crafted, beautifully shot, perfectly acted. I rarely gush over a film but in this case I have to. It's a touching story of an old man and his young relative reminiscing on the day of a funeral about the day in the old man's past where he took on a legendary giant pike in a nearby lake. 

How this is told and played out takes you on story that is filled with humour and many rich and unexpected moments. It left me with a great warm and uplifted feeling, some two hour films costing millions easily fail to do that. The art of the short film needs to be rediscovered."
