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.

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!

Change to programmed films



Sadly due to the withdrawal of the screening licence* by the distributors of "West Side Story" we have been left with no alternative but to replace Friday's film with another. With the help of Laurence Sutcliffe we have chosen Franco Zeffirelli's 1968 "Romeo & Juliet" a well-respected, classic film from the same era, Laurence will still deliver his introduction regarding the influence of Shakespeare on film. Sincere apologies for the disappointment but the matter is beyond our control.






We have hit a similar issue with "The Kid Brother" as although a licence is possible, additional permission to screen has to be obtained from the Harold Lloyd Estate. In this instance we have opted to show Buster Keaton in "The General" which we trust will be a suitable replacement and that with Andy May's piano accompaniment you will enjoy a true silent movie experience. 


* The licence has been withdrawn as they are about to release a new version and thus we have been left in limbo, unable to screen the existing version and the new version has not yet been released. When we checked at the start of the year we found that a licence was available and proceeded to add it to our programme/publicity material.
