ABOUT THE KIRKY PICTURE PALACE
Our 2018 consultation gave us literally hundreds of ideas of what people wanted the future of Kirkintilloch to look like, everyone, yes everyone – young and old – told us they wanted to see Cinema back in Kirky. That’s a long road for us to travel, but pre-Covid we ran a number of really successful events. We’ve partnered with Regional Screen Scotland and IndyCinema to start to build a programme of Cinema in the town. We’re aiming high – seeking to bring a proper cinema experience with relatively new release films. Our first event on October 12th 2019 was a tremendous success. We sold out 600 tickets for Toy Story 4, The Lion King and Downton Abbey.
Our video of the day:
We have recently been given funding from Filmhub Scotland to deliver more bespoke screenings in the community. Our plan is to develop community screenings for those who find it harder to access mainstream cinema and to develop more cultural screenings for the wider community.
We have purchased our own cinema equipment and are interested in partnering with organisations to deliver cinema to as many people as possible.
Our first showings are available at the Park Centre from September – December, these will be updated as new showings are available.
