Don't tell Darth Vader, but Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (12A) will be among the choices on Saturday 25 January at Kirkintilloch Town Hall.

Also showing will be the Oscar-nominated new version of Little Women (PG), directed by Greta Gerwig and starring Saoirse Ronan and Emma Watson, and Spies in Disguise (PG), an animated family comedy set in the high-octane, globe-trotting world of international espionage.

Tickets are already selling quicker than the Millennium Falcon at lightspeed.

Your Kirky - aka Kirkintilloch Community Council - produces Kirky Picture Palace with East Dunbartonshire Council and other partners including East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust (which operates Kirkintilloch Town Hall), Regional Screen Scotland and INDY Cinema Group.

Nigel Rooke, from Your Kirky, said, "It's a new year and a new adventure for us at Kirky Picture Palace, with another three epic family films on the way - Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Little Women and Spies in Disguise.

"Feedback from our last two events has been fabulous and we're excited about the next instalment, which once again features a strong roster of thrilling new films.

"We have great plans for 2020 at Kirkintilloch Town Hall - bringing brand new films to people in the heart of their community, whilst also boosting local businesses into the bargain."

"The first two events - in October and December - were a sparkling success, giving people the chance to enjoy the magic of the movies in the iconic Kirkintilloch Town Hall.

"The initiative has helped to attract hundreds of people into Kirkintilloch, boosting local businesses and hostelries, while also displaying fantastic community spirit."
