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

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."
