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!

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* The licence has been withdrawn as they are about to release a new version and thus we have been left in limbo, unable to screen the existing version and the new version has not yet been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.
