Serina Marshall, Cinema Co-ordinator of the Kirky Picture Palace, said, "It's fantastic to be back home in Kirkintilloch Town Hall, where our magical movie adventures first began in October 2019.

"As well as blockbusters like Elemental and the latest instalment of the action-packed Mission: Impossible franchise, we're delighted to be showing a selection box of festive favourites – as chosen by our patrons.

"Many thanks to all our volunteers – without whom we couldn't run these popular events. If you have a passion for the pictures and want to join the team, please get in touch. We hope the community continues to support their cinema, which many people asked for as part of our consultations in recent years."

Councillor Jim Gibbons, chair of East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust, added: "It's great to see such a wide range of films, including Christmas classics, being shown at the town hall.

 “I'm particularly pleased that screenings have also been organised which are dementia and baby friendly.

"Kirkintilloch Town Hall is now fully operational again and the diary is already filling up with a range of community events and classes. The Heritage Centre is also open to the public (Monday to Friday, 10am-4pm)."
