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:

Saturday 5th September, in partnership with Nairn Book & Arts – Cinema Nairn’s regular silent film with live musical accompaniment. Buster Keaton’s ‘The Navigator’ (1924). 10:00am at The Little Theatre

Friday 25th September: Ida (2014) PG 13 (82 mins) 7.30pm Polish with subtitles

Yet another hidden gem in Nairn! Anna is a young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland, on the verge of taking her vows, when she discovers a dark family secret dating back to the years of the Nazi occupation. A gripping, highly acclaimed film from Poland.

Monday 5th October: 39 Steps (1935) U (86 mins) 2pm Matinee

Only the original and the best is good enough for Cinema Nairn goers, and Hitchcock’s version with Robert Donat is just that! You know the story and the scenery – some come along and watch it on the big screen with everyone else!

Friday 23rd October: Belle (2014) 12A (104 mins) 7.30pm

Touching story of the mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral, raised by her aristocratic great-uncle in 18th century England. Award winning performance from newcomer Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

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.
