Welcome to Driftwood Cinema

Serving Rural Communities our aim is to bring the Cinema to your village and provide community events centred around an evening of new or old film. Recreating the cinema experience we don’t just show one film, we add in local and historical short films relevant to your community, and to add to the fun we ask your community to contribute your own short clips, taken on your video camera or mobile phone, so your chance to see yourself on the big screen.

We are a Social Enterprise, so we reinvest our income to provide more and better services to the community that we serve. We keep our ticket prices for community events as low as possible so that everyone can get involved and get the chance to see big screen entertainment right on their doorstep. To keep the projectors on we hire out our indoor and outdoor equipment for private events, making a special occasion just that bit more special. Our mobile cinema equipment can be set up indoors or out (weather permitting), so why not spend a evening in the great outdoors, underneath the stars, watching an old classic or a new blockbuster.



Upcoming Screenings

28 Jul

Time: 7:30pm
Location: Eskdalemuir Community Hub

28th Jul 2018 – Eskdalemuir – Hunt For The Wilderpeople

Hunt for the Wilderpeople is charming and funny, it is a drama masquerading as a comedy about an unloved boy whom nobody wants until someone says, Yes, I’ll love him. Much of the humor comes from the child, who’s at once a pip and a gloriously expressive ambassador for the director Taika Waititi’s cleareyed take on human nature and movies. Mr. Waititi knows that we love to cry at sad and bad times, but he also knows that people in pain need to get on with their lives.

Director: Taika Waititi

18th Aug 2018 – New Galloway Park – The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Big screen, beanbags, barbecue and popcorn in the park for our 2018 Movie in the Park.

Perks of being a Wallflower brings stinging humour and surprising tenderness – going beyond the typical coming-of-age drivel aimed at teens. Chbosky’s compassion for his characters is absent any hint of condescension. And that’s reflected in performances that leave the feeling you’ve seen something good and true.

Socially awkward teen Charlie (Logan Lerman) is a wallflower, always watching life from the sidelines. Free-spirited Sam (Emma Watson) and her stepbrother Patrick (Ezra Miller) become the influence that rescues Charlie from his deep insecurity and his depression over the suicide of a friend. In his first year, he learns a little about sex, drinking and drugs, and a lot about friendship.

Artsy, outsider and non-conformist this movie screams it’s OK to be who you are.

The two could not be more different – Sandra is a fish out of water next to her outspoken, serial dating, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs at the moment, and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to a community dance class, where gradually she starts finding her feet and romance as she meets her sister’s friends, Charlie (Timothy Spall), Jackie (Joanna Lumley) and Ted (David Hayman).
