The Birks is ‘Cumming’ Back...

It's been a tumultuous year, but we are delighted to be able to announce our plans for coming back to you all this summer as The Birks Cinema kicks off the summer film programme with NEW Drive-in Cinema dates in June!  As some of you may have already spotted across our social media channels a few weeks ago, our wonderful patron, Alan Cummings, delivered an optimistic and grateful message to our community, starting with a huge thank you to every single one of you who was able to lend your support, either in person or via donations, to the Birks Cinema over the past year - help that has allowed us to still be here today, which really is a brilliant achievement, so thank you all.

Alan also proudly announced that this June - from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th - we will be hosting another Drive-in at Wades Park for a weekend of films against one of the most beautiful backdrops in Scotland. After the success of the first two drive-in experiences last year, there will be another serving of your favourite films, plus some of the best local food in the Tay Valley.  Please check out the Birks Cinema website www.birkscinema.co.uk for a full list of films and to book your tickets before they sell-out!

In other news, you may be aware that we recently appointed a NEW Director to help us identify new ways to adapt and respond to the challenges facing the cinema industry and to better reflect the changing world around us.  The Birks Cinema is a community enterprise in all senses of the word and a world-class independent cinema programme will always be at the heart of what the building offers to its community, however we are now working hard to develop NEW programme strands incorporating live theatre, music and comedy as well as investigating new and innovative ways to bring a wider range of products to our audience via the technology that the cinema has to offer, such as exploring piloting a scheme to stream live events from around Scotland directly into the auditorium.

Drive-in Cinema and the new Video-on-Demand platform will continue to feature as part of our ongoing programme of work due to the growing success and demand for both products from our audience.  We believe that we can harness new ways to engage, reach and grow our audiences as we enter a brave new world for our much loved, community-owned, cinema and can’t wait to get our doors flung open once again and to have you join us on that journey.

While we patiently wait to reopen, keep an eye out for recruitment opportunities and please give a warm welcome to new team members as and when they begin their journey to help develop The Birks Cinema into a thriving community hub once again.

Thanks for your continued support,

The Birks Cinema Trustees
