Leith Theatre Cinema Nights:

THE FOG

23rd of October

 

One hundred years ago, out in the waters around Spivey Point, a small clipper ship drew toward land. Suddenly, out of the night, the fog rolled in. The ship crashed against the rocks, the hull sheared in two, masts snapped like a twig. The wreckage sank, with all the men aboard.

It is told by the fishermen, and their fathers and grandfathers, that when the fog returns to Antonio Bay, the men at the bottom of the sea will rise up and search for the campfire that led them to their dark, icy death.

And guess what happens on the evening of October 23rd…

THE FOG COMES TO LEITH THEATRE!!

Join us for the John Carpenter Classic. As always it’s only a fiver and delicious Cinema Scran is available for purchase too!

Bars, Kitchen & Doors Open @ 18:30

Film starts @ 19:30

What you can’t see won’t hurt you… it will kill you.

(No injuries or death expected or planned at the actual screening of this film, but do prepare for some occasional fog!)

This film is suitable only for 15 years and over.

Showtime at 7:30PM. Get your tickets HERE!

BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM

18th of September

 

For the first of our special Scalarama Edinburgh editions of Cinema Nights at Leith Theatre, Reel Girl Film Club, Cinetopia and Leith Theatre are all teaming up for a screening of the British classic, Bend It Like Beckham, inspired by this year’s Women’s World Cup!

If you haven’t seen the film yet, or want a quick trip back to the early 2000’s, check out the trailer here

 

This coming-of-age romantic comedy follows the life of young Jess, the daughter of a Punjabi Sikh family living in London, as she tries to pursue her passion for playing football in the face of her family’s disapproval. Written and directed by filmmaker Gurinder Chadha, this semi autobiographical film sheds a light on the themes of tradition, family, culture, racism, sexuality, and the role of women.

Join the girl power, get your tickets HERE, and meet us on at the Leith Theatre on the 18th at 7PM!

26th of June – PRIDE

Join us for the celebration of Pride Month at Leith Theatre’s June’s Cinema Nights with the movie PRIDE!

A British film released in 2014, described by Time Out as “the holy grail for filmmakers: to tell a story with something to say about our world that is also shamelessly entertaining, moving and funny.”

Pride is a historical com-dram based on the true story of a group of gay and lesbian activists who raised money to help the families affected by the 1984 British Miners strike. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and we will be showing a beautiful short film documenting these events during the evening!

Once again tickets are only a fiver. So get yours quick because the last Cinema Night SOLD OUT!

Plus, to add to our evening of community cinema fun, our lovely pals down the road at Ostara, will be joining us with some Funky Cinema Scran available for purchase!
