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
