Shinty Shorts & Geordie

U
A special programme of short films about shinty, followed by the Scottish classic from 1955 – Geordie. We’ve teamed up with charity Screen Memories, to bring you a selection of films about shinty. Screen Memories is a charity that uses cinema to enable and expand the opportunity for people to come together to reminisce. It works mainly, but not exclusively, with people with dementia and their carers. We will follow the Shinty shorts with a screening of Geordie. Geordie was directed by Frank Launder and stars Bill Travers, Alastair Sim and Norah Gorsen. This charming film tells the story of Wee Geordie, the Highland lad who, encouraged by girlfriend Jean, reluctantly leaves home to compete in the hammer throwing event at the Melbourne Olympics. But will home-sick Geordie swap his kilt for a flannel suit? No way! Everyone is very welcome. This programme of films is at the special price of £2 for all.

All seating is unreserved. If there is a particular area of the auditorium that you like to sit in, then please arrive in good time.

If you are a wheelchair user, please book directly with us by emailing info@regionalscreenscotland.org at least 24 hours before the scheduled start time.

Please note that we offer refunds only if we are forced to cancel a screening – perhaps due to very bad weather or a mechanical problem. If you book tickets, and then fall ill, we will not offer a refund and recommend that you pass your tickets on to friends or family.
