Film has always been an important part of Creative Stirling’s programming – we’ve been doing pop-up cinema events since we started back in 2012, from family friendly outdoor screenings to cult films with a unique twist.
It’s been a while since we’ve held some pop-up screenings, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring three collaborative screenings to the hub over the next three months!
First up, we’re collaborating with Macrobert Arts Centre to host a pop-up screening of the late Agnès Varda’s 2008 documentary The Beaches of Agnès. The film celebrates her life whilst also more broadly looking at the mind and creative process of an artist. Tickets are free, and coffee will be provided on the night.
Next up in September we’re hosting a fantastic night to celebrate 150 years of the Wallace Monument in collaboration with Stirling District Tourism. As part of the celebration, we’ll be screening a rare archive film from the National Library of Scotland titled Royal Stirling which showcases what Stirling looked like in the 1970s. Following that, we’ll be showing the 1954 film Brigadoon – an all singing all dancing musical set in a mystical and enchanted Scottish village. In keeping with the fabulous musical numbers, we’re encouraging all those attending to dress-up in keeping with the code of ‘Technicolour Jacobite’! Tickets are £8 – food and drink available on the night.
In October, we’ll be collaborating with Central Scotland Documentary Festival to screen a film at the hub as part of their programme. More details to come on that very soon!
The hope is that we can continue to programme a diverse selection of films on a more regular basis. If you’re interested in seeing more film screenings like these in Stirling, please make sure you come along to support any of these three nights if you can.
Hope to see you there!
