A POPULAR community cinema will be making a return for the festive period. 

The Kirky Picture Palace in Kirkintilloch will return on Saturday December 11 and will show Christmas classics Elf and It's a Wonderful Life as well as new release Spencer - a biopic of the life of Princess Diana.

The event will take place in St Mary's Church Hall with tickets priced at £5 for adults and £3 for children.

Glasgow Times:

Covid safety protocols such as cleaning, hand sanitiser, face masks and track and trace will be in place.

Nigel Rooke from Your Kirky said “We’re delighted to be able to bring cinema back to Kirkintilloch once again, but we’re also really conscious that some people may still feel uneasy about larger indoor events.

Glasgow Times:

“The Kirky Picture Palace was a roaring success pre-Covid and we’re really keen to bring it back to the town, where we’re sure it’ll once again be well-supported by the community.

"Despite any changes required due to Covid we’re really going to try and pull out all the stops so that everyone has a great trip out.”

“In our 2018 consultation everyone – young and old – told us they wanted to see Cinema back in Kirky. And post-Covid Your Kirky are keen to do that once again!"

Tickets are available here.
