It’s A Wonderful Life screening at 2:30pm on Sunday 23rd December

On the Sunday before Christmas it’s our annual screening of It’s a Wonderful Life. If you’ve never seen It’s a Wonderful Life it really is one of those films that you must see. This review gives a good insight into what it is all about and gives 3 reasons to watch it. 

We are screening The Muppets Christmas Carole simultaneously in the St Joseph’s Hall so parents with children can decide which film they’d prefer to watch.

Sunday 23rd December

Balerno Village Screen is a community cinema free to attend and funded by donations. We ask that you reserve a free ticket in advance (via the button above) to help us manage numbers.  We also ask that if you can no longer attend to cancel your ticket to allow someone else to see the film.

Tickets are also available via the Mill Cafe or you can book and print your tickets at Balerno Library (staff are happy to help).

Weekend review and Christmas screenings

Our November 2014 screening weekend will go down in BVS history as the first weekend that we screened two films simultaneously bringing choice to your Saturday night viewing of The Book Thief or The Two Faces of January.

Thank you mentions

  • We shall start with the BVS crew – great job crew.
  • Then there were the delicious canapes – thank you Letter Box Bistro your efforts were greatly appreciated!
  • Thank you to Tunnocks for the tea cakes and wafers.
  • BVS crew member Jonathan gets a special mention for his efforts to resolve the technical issues on Saturday – sorry for the film delay but we believe two amps went ‘pop’.
  • And thank you – our audience – for your continual support and turning out in such large numbers to support our local village screen.

Ticket housekeeping

There are some people who are regularly booking tickets and then not attending. The reservation system helps us plan our volunteer levels, food & drink provision, venue health & safety and often a waiting list if a screening is at capacity. Can you please only reserve a ticket if you are sure you are coming along and if you need to cancel can you please give us as much notice as possible. We would really appreciate your support with this matter.
