News Update No 69 - 7th April 2017



The Jungle Book - Saturday 29th April 2017 - all proceeds to Revive MS Support, Scotland

Following many requests for a classic animated film, we are delighted to be showing The Jungle Book as a special screening for one night only. This will be in addition to our regular season, and tickets (£6) are available from Hamiltons Newsagents and at the door on the evening.

The Jungle Book is being shown in The Corn Exchange on Saturday 29th April 2017 at 7.30pm.

Disney's classic animated film is inspired by the stories written by Rudyard Kipling about Mowgli, a child found in a basket as a baby in the Indian jungle.

First released in 1967, the film was the last to have Walt Disney's personal touch. Although he died before the film's release, it went on to become the studio's most successful cartoon, and is without doubt one of the greatest animated films of all time, appealing to children and adults alike. 50 years after its release, it is still one of the true classics in the history of film.

All the proceeds from the film will go to Revive MS Support, Scotland. As this is a special screening, the ticket price is not included as part of the membership season ticket.

Admission is £6, with tickets available from Hamiltons Newsagents and at the door on the evening, subject to availability.

One of the best-loved animated films of all time - plus full supporting programme!

About Us

Biggar Little Cinema was founded in February 2011, and is run as a community cinema on a non-profit basis.

As a not-for-profit organisation, our aim is to disburse all the surplus from our screenings as charitable donations, to local organisations and Rotary projects. So far, with your help, we have raised over £18,000.

We also aim to provide the opportunity for members of an isolated rural community to enjoy good films without having to make a round trip of 60 miles or more to the commercial cinema.

Our films are shown in high-resolution digital quality, and projected using the latest digital equipment on to a full-size cinema screen. To match the exceptional quality of our picture, our sound is Dolby stereo using high definition loudspeakers. The Corn Exchange is well-known as an excellent venue, with very comfortable cinema-style seating and a cosy atmosphere. A full bar is available both before and after each screening, with a lounge area for relaxing and chatting with friends. All in all, Biggar Little Cinema offers a perfect location - and all proceeds go to support local organisations and Rotary projects.
