summer holiday bus

We’re all going on our summer holidays

Th-th-that’s all folks for our 2013-14 spring season – we are taking a break for the summer and will return in the Autumn. Great to see so many regulars coming back for every show and also new faces giving our cinema a try.

When we come back in September we may have both screens working (we now have screens in the Ogston and St Jo’s Hall) with the best equipment thanks to your donations and grants from our main sponsors (RBS, City of Edinburgh Council, Scotmid). This will let us put on more great nights like The Angel’s Share.

We will have few more indie movies on Fridays and Blockbusters on Saturdays. Kids matinees will feature as ever and our children’s animation classes (which have just sold out this week) are running in August and September.

Our Autumn season commences in September when we will have Grand Budapest Hotel as an early screening. Look out too for the great film about The Undertones called Good Vibrations, playing as part of the Balerno Music Festival in October.

To keep up to date please follow us by email (link to the right) or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Tickets for the new season should be made available in August. Have a great summer and see you in the Autumn.

Merry Christmas everyone

Amazingly, it is only a year since we thought it would be fun to show It’s a Wonderful Life to a few people in St Joseph’s Hall. And on Saturday afternoon, we finished our first year by doing it all over again to complete our first year as a community cinema.

In the past year, Balerno Village Screen has flourished to become a true Community Cinema in spite of ready access to local multiplexes just a few minutes away. We think that’s because we value the special atmosphere and convenience of the Village Screen. We’ve learned a huge amount over the year, and our ambition continues to push us to do more than simply show films. Continue reading
