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!

First AGM & Quiz Night

Our first AGM was a great success. We had a good turnout and were able to report we are financially sound a year into our endeavour thanks to the film fans of Nairn (and further afield!) and generous support from the Rotary and Nairn Discretionary Fund. The public support and donations of funding ensure we can show a wide range of films and keep ticket prices low. We also made a point of thanking Sam Morrison and the staff of Nairn Community And Arts Centre for their help.

The AGM was followed by a Film Quiz and the photo above showa the winning team, three of whom had travelled all the way from Inverness to take part. Pictured with them is Seamus McArdle, Cinema Nairn volunteer Box Office Manager and Treasurer, and, er, Charlie Chaplin.

Calendar Updated

Hi I've just updated the Google Calendar on the blog with dates/times all forthcoming films apart from those due to be screened as part of the Book & Arts Festival as the timings have yet to be determined for those particular films.
