West Side Cinema offers the edge of world cinema in a relaxed and social atmosphere – themed music, candle-lit tables and a ‘bring your own’ policy. We screen short films with every feature film: fiction and documentary from around the world. We also encourage filmmaker talks and workshops and will often tie in with established local festivals.

To date we’ve welcomed directors John Maclean (Slow West), Ian Sellar (Venus Peter), short filmmakers Elizabeth Hobbs, Finlay Pretsell, Ewan Stewart, Callum Rice, author Rachel Seiffert and actress Gerda Stephenson.
We feature in 51 Best Independent Cinemas in the UK (Den of Geek)
And in the Cinema For All Scottish Starter Pack citing case studies on ways to start up a film society/cinema.
In 2015 we were nominated for ‘Best Film Programming’ at the Cinema For All Film Society Of The Year Awards.
