The brilliant novelist and chronicler of Scotland James Robertson joins Director Anthony Baxter (Eye of the Storm) for a special evening on Sunday 6th March, 7.30pm. They are on stage at the Birks to discuss James's new novel News of the Dead and Antony Baxter's film shorts (which will be shown) of the same name. A fascinating evening in the company of a pair of brilliant minds.
Air & Safety
Fun fact - the air in our auditorium is extracted and refreshed 7 times per hour - or about every 8 minutes! This measure has been in place from the very start of pandemic and we believe offers one of the highest extraction rates in the industry. We also continue to operate 1m social distancing in our auditorium which is over and above current government guidance, for your safety and comfort.
Our £5 Relaxed Screenings take place on the first Friday of every month. They create an inclusive environment for those on the autism spectrum, people living with dementia and anyone who would benefit from a relaxed cinema experience. The lights are left on low throughout the screening, the sound is set at a lower volume and there are no adverts/trailers. This month it’s the classic Magnificent Seven, 4th March, 10.30am.
Football memories is back at the Birks! An award-winning national project supported by Sir Alex Fergusson, a former St Johnstone player and manager of another well-known club in the English Premiership – Man Utd. With the use of player picture cards, team photos and memorabilia, participants’ memories of footballing days gone by are encouraged to be reignited. Please come along and bring anyone who you think might benefit from this kind of social interaction. Friday 18 February, Friday 18 March, & Friday 15 April, 11am.
Nicolette McLeod’s The Sea & Me is an hour long show that weaves together song, stories and personal anecdotes exploring themes of marine conservation, exploration, and the magnitude of the sea. Armed with a guitar, loop pedal and her mesmerising clear voice, Nicolette creates a beautiful seascape of sounds overlaid with arranged British Isle folk songs, her originals and some popular classics. This is a limited capacity event taking place on Saturday 12th March.
