Community cinema for Duns hall

Duns Volunteer Hall

Starting next month, new blockbuster films will become a regular feature at Duns Volunteer Hall.

Community group A Heart for Duns has partnered with Film Mobile Scotland, which provides local venues with high quality, fully digital cinema, including a 25 foot screen with surround sound.

The programme kicks off on Friday, September 25, with two films: Inside Out from Walt Disney and Pixar Studios (two screenings, at 2.30pm and 5pm) and The Man from U.N.C.L.E., directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer and Hugh Grant (7.30pm). Tickets, priced £6 for adults and £5 for children, will be on sale from September 1 at Nairn’s Newsagent in Duns and at the Volunteer Hall from 9am to 1pm, Tuesday to Friday.

During the evening of Friday, September 25, the audience will be asked to choose a film for October. But the eagerly awaited 007 film Spectre has already been booked for Friday, November 27 (starting at 7.30pm). More information and trailers of future films at the Volunteer Hall are available at: www.filmmobilescotland.co.uk/venues/duns

A Heart for Duns has postponed the launch of Duns Film Club to the New Year. It hopes that once community cinema at the Volunteer Hall gets well under way, these new release films will be complemented by a programme of arthouse, foreign language and classic movies. For updates see www.aheartforduns.org.

A Food and Craft Market will be held in the hall on Thursday, September 3, from 10am-4pm. This regular weekday market features local food producers and a range of craft stalls. Café open all day. Free entry.
