Discover the magic of the movies in Scotland through this National Libraries of Scotland touring display. Colourful panels, film slides, old cinema tickets and programmes, and a showreel of Scottish film highlights tell the story of cinema in Scotland, including its oldest cinema, our very own Hippodrome.
As cinema-going grew in popularity, purpose-built buildings appeared, allowing the masses to take in the movies in comfort and style. Queuing for a good seat, enjoying drinks and snacks and watching advertising features were all part of the Scottish cinema experience. Scotland’s scenery, history and culture have also provided inspiration for many filmmakers and the display features a selection of vintage clips of Scotland on film. Explore the story of cinema in Scotland for the past 120 years.
