The magic of the silver screen returns to Kirkintilloch Town Hall on Saturday 29 February - with a choice of three thrilling new films to choose from:

  • 1pm - Dolittle (PG)

Robert Downey Jr steps out of the Iron Man outfit to star in a reimagining of the classic tale of the vet who could talk to the animals...

  • 3.30pm - The Personal History of David Copperfield (PG)

Acclaimed satirist Armando Iannucci adapts the Charles Dickens classic David Copperfield - creating a witty world of family, friendship and drama in Victorian England.

  • 7pm - 1917 (15)

As the First World War rages, two young British soldiers are given a seemingly impossible mission in this edge-of-the-seat, Oscar-winning film from Sam Mendes.

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, "We are delighted to bring three more amazing new movies to Kirkintilloch, offering film fans the chance to see the latest blockbusters in the heart of the local community.

"We aim to provide access to a variety of films, with this month's selections ranging from Victorian England to the trenches of WWI. Tickets are available now at just £5 per adult and £3 per child - making it a great way to see new releases at a cracking price."
