News Update No 59 - May 2016



Thank You!

A huge 'Thank You' to all who supported our screening of Some Like It Hot on Saturday 30th April - with all proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support

We really would like to thank everyone who made our screening of Some Like it Hot on Saturday 30th April such a success.

Thanks to your generosity, our gross income, including ticket sales and raffle tickets, was £955. What a result!

Once we have paid the film licence fee and the rental of the Corn Exchange, all our proceeds will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.

All those who made the evening such a success deserve our thanks. And we were especially grateful for the generosity of Biggar resident Jim Jeffery who kindly donated the limited edition print 'Ready for Take Off' to be raffled - the winner was Heather Connolly.

Many of you asked if we would organise a similar evening next year. Watch this space!

Our new season commences in October, and details are available by clicking here. If you would like to become a member again, please click here for membership details.

We hope to see you in October!

About Us

Biggar Little Cinema was founded in February 2011, and is run as a community cinema on a non-profit basis.

As a not-for-profit organisation, our aim is to disburse all the surplus from our screenings as charitable donations, to local organisations and Rotary projects. So far, with your help, we have raised over £14,000.

We also aim to provide the opportunity for members of an isolated rural community to enjoy good films without having to make a round trip of 60 miles or more to the commercial cinema.

Our films are shown in high-resolution digital quality, and projected using the latest digital equipment on to a full-size cinema screen. To match the exceptional quality of our picture, our sound is Dolby stereo using high definition loudspeakers. The Corn Exchange is well-known as an excellent venue, with very comfortable cinema-style seating and a cosy atmosphere. A full bar is available both before and after each screening, with a lounge area for relaxing and chatting with friends. All in all, Biggar Little Cinema offers a perfect location - and all proceeds go to support local organisations and Rotary projects.
