Cinema Nairn launches the 2016 film season in style with some Hollywood glamour

Press Release from Cinema Nairn

High Society 1956 (U)
Monday 18th January    2pm Matinee
Nairn Community and Arts Centre
Tickets at the door (includes tea and bakes)

What could brighten up a wintry afternoon more than Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong strutting their stuff in the 1956 musical ‘High Society’ ?

Based on Philip Barry’s play, ‘The Philadelphia Story’ about a society lady giving the run around to her three suitors, and featuring Cole Porter’s glorious songs such as ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ the film was Grace Kelly’s swansong before becoming Princess of Monaco.

Screening is at 2pm on Monday 18th January at Nairn Community Centre, with tickets at the door (includes tea and bakes).

Other highlights from a strong 2016 programme are ‘Brooklyn’, an Oscar contender for this year, ‘Pride’, the true story of gay activists supporting the miners’ strike, ‘Seven Year Itch’, to celebrate our seventh season, and ‘Floodtide’ a 1949 romance set in the Glasgow shipyards. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy ‘Wild’, a true story of a woman trekking the Pacific Trail to try to get her life back on track, and another redemptive story ‘Healing’ is set in an Australian prison, where birds of prey help inmates to rekindle compassion. Foreign language films are strongly represented with ‘Force Majeure’ a dark Swedish comedy set in the Alps, Oscar nominated Indian love story ‘The Lunch Box’, and a gritty coming of age Jordanian film ‘Theeb’ about a young boy who is asked to guide a mysterious stranger during WW1.

Programmes will be available soon, and for more information visit, or our facebook page.

The Cinema Nairn website has also had a major make over - Seamus tells us:

"Here you'll see full details, dates, times, synopsis and trailers for all the great films we're showing this year. Keep an eye on the website for updates and all the latest information on the films. We've spent a lot of time (and learning!) to build the site, so any feedback (via the site) on how it can be improved will be gratefully received. And also keep an eye out for our Flyer for 2016 in all the usual places - and if you would like some for your establishment, please let us know."
