A struggling musician realises he’s the only person on Earth who can remember The Beatles after waking up in an alternate timeline where they never existed.



*a note on tickets for 2020 —

We’ve currently dispensed with ticketed entry for now. We found that most folk prefer to arrive on the night and just pay on the door. Having tickets for sale in advance would only be needed, we thought, when we could predict a big audience. Bohemian Rhapsody was a very special night and extremely well-attended. Normally, we reckon on a smaller audience that we can easily accommodate.

We’re updating our programme – aiming for a screening on the 3rd Saturday every month for our adult film programme. Now, every 2nd month will feature a new film as close to it’s general release date as we can manage so we can offer films with maximum appeal. On the other months, we aim to screen older but classic films  (in our humble opinions!) to suit different audiences in the community. Your suggestions are always welcome. 

We also hope to run screenings in different venues across Forres (and the wider area) once we have our mobile projection kit up and running.

The 1st and 3rd Friday every month for kid’s shows (except for the summer holidays) continue. As ever, we’re open to special showings for local groups by arrangement.

Coming soon – our programme for the year ahead
now being updated to fit in the plans above

…plus a list of this season’s past screenings



We had intended to set up a summer programme for families, offering a weekly afternoon showing mid-week. We’d hoped this might provide parents with something to engage them and their kids (and any visiting families) leaving weekends free for enjoying the usual summer stuff.

Owing to time constraints we weren’t able to put this in place this year. We decided we need to expand our group of volunteers so, if anyone is interested in helping, we’d love to hear from you.

We’re including the summer programme in our planning for next year, so if its of interest, please get in touch. We’ve still time to adjust the way it works to suit people’s needs.

We usually need a few people to take care of the door, issue/check memberships, collect entry donations, and put out and clear away the seating. We’re also keen to have help with projection and will offer the necessary training. We often have a couple of people on the projection team so there’s always assistance at hand!
