About our Films

We conducted a detailed audience survey at the end of our first full season, asking viewers which of our films they had especially enjoyed, and the type of film they would like to see in the future.

We have been informed by these comments, and have borne them in mind when selecting titles for our screenings. Hence, our objectives are to choose up-to-date films, many of them award winners, with a wide audience appeal, as well as films which we believe offer something a little unusual, and hence of special interest to cinemagoers.

We have six superb films for our new season which commences in October - three wonderful comedies, a true-life story, a romantic drama and an Oscar-winning thriller. Four of them won BAFTAs and Golden Globe nominations in 2016.

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, and we will be donating more in October this year..

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.
