Tuesday 3rd at 9:00pm to 10:10pm - Battleship Potemkin (1925) PG. (Please note the time)
Nairn's own Andy May brings his trio to Cinema Nairn for the much lauded, classic Russian silent film telling the true tale of a 1905 naval mutiny and street riot in Odessa. The trio, who have individually played with artists such as Jack Bruce, Marianne Faithfull, The Proclaimers, Capercaillie among others, will improvise on themes written by Andy for the film. A one off must see opportunity.

North Face (12A) 2008. In German, with English subtitles.
Continuing Cinema Nairn’s mountaineering themed films in November, North Face is a depiction of the true story about the race to conquer the north face of the Eiger. Set in 1936, it’s the story of two reluctant German ‘heroes’ taking on the elements in what is a highly suspenseful film with dramatic cinematography.

Are you in the Christmas spirit yet? Don't worry, neither was Scrooge, but the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future, soon put an end to that! Come and join us to get in the mood for Christmas, with the original and (in our opinion) the best version of A Christmas Carol, the Dickens classic starring Alistair Sim as Scrooge.
