Sing screening 2pm on Saturday 30th September

Our films on Saturday 30th September have a musical theme and are being screened as part of the Balerno Music Festival

On Saturday afternoon we start with Sing. In a town with no humans, just animals, a koala named Buster Moon realizes he will soon lose his theater if he cannot turn his luck around. He comes up with a plan to host a singing competition, where the winner will receive $100,000. Will this be enough to return his theater to glory?

Saturday 30th September

Whiplash screening Fri 2nd October

In partnership with the EIGHTH Balerno Music Festival there will be a  musical theme to our October films.

We start on Friday 2nd October with Whiplash. A young and talented drummer attending a prestigious music academy finds himself under the wing of the most respected professor at the school, one who does not hold back on abuse towards his students. The two form an odd relationship as the student wants to achieve greatness, and the professor pushes him.

Colin Cloud – Forensic Mind Reader & Good Vibrations

Balerno Village Screen has secured the attendance of the amazing Fringe Star, Colin Cloud, Forensic Mindreader to do a performance before we screen Good Vibrations on Friday 3rd October. We are soooo excited to have such a talented up and coming star in the cinema!

“GENIUS … Truly amazed. Go and see him – you literally won’t believe your eyes” *****Edinburgh Reporter

Colin is trying out new material before he flies the following day to New York where NBC have commissioned his own TV show – we are delighted to help out!

His show is funny and mind blowing and a recent video of him in action is below.

If you would like to attend please book a ticket via the button below and join us in welcoming Colin Cloud to Balerno! There are only a handful of tickets left so don’t delay. Colin will do a 15 minute show before the film so will be finished around 20 minutes later than previously advertised.

Balerno Music Festival

Preparations for the SEVENTH Balerno Music Festival are well underway and there will be a wide variety of musical events coming to the village this autumn. As part of the festival, Balerno Village Screen will be screening Good Vibrations.

The film is a vibrant, hilarious and inspirational biopic of Terri Hooley, Belfast’s “Godfather of Punk,” whose upstart record shop and music label Good Vibrations became the hub of the city’s nascent ’70s punk scene and a voice of resistance to the sectarian violence of the Troubles.
