SAT 05 AUG – ‘Whisky Galore’ (1949) (PG)

Doors open 7:oo pm for a 7:45  start
£5 / £3 student and Young Scot card
Continuing our Stromness 200 Per Mare celebrations, we’re bringing the original 1949 ‘Whisky Galore’ to the big screen, with a high definition digital restoration.
Supported by Highland Park Whisky, the night will be made extra special with a live band, ‘Hotscotch’, playing 1940’s tunes. That’s not all. It’s fancy dress, with themes of the sea, shipwrecks, war time, and anything else you think works with the night. There will be prizes for the best dressed.
