Membership


Membership for our 2019/20 Season

For our 2019/20 season, we will be screening six films. Please see our home page for details.

By popular demand, we are having two screenings of each film, each being shown on two consecutive days. We are offering a choice of membership - either for the first screening or the second, so you are able to choose which one you would prefer. To help us plan our ticket sales to non-members, please note that membership is specific to either the first screening or the second for the whole season.

Tickets for each performance are available from Hamiltons Newsagents or at the door for £7, or membership for the whole season of six films is available for £35, a saving of £7 on the ticket price.

About Membership

The aim of Biggar Little Cinema is to provide the opportunity for members of an isolated rural community to enjoy good films in a cinema environment, at as low a cost as practicable, without having to make a round trip of 60 miles or more to the commercial cinema.

We are a not-for-profit voluntary organisation and members are very important to us - people who support our aims ofbeing a community cinema. A strong membership provides a robust base. Membership subscriptions help our cash flow and reduce film licence fees. The more members we have, the lower licensing fees we pay.

Membership is open to anybody over the age of 18 years who applies to join and pays the subscription. As a member you will receive news updates by email if you opt in for this service.


Many thanks to all of you who have already confirmed your membership for our new season. If you haven't become a member yet, please do consider joining. The more members we have, the less we pay in film licence fees, which is particularly important since all our surplus goes to local organisations and Rotary charities. Your memberships for our past seasons, together with ticket sales, have already enabled us to raise over £22,000 - so you can see that we value your continued support.

Alternatively, please call any of the below who will be very pleased to send you a membership form, either by post or email

Tom Matthews on 01899 220783 or
Stewart Houston on 01899 220418 or
