Following on from the successful reminiscence session at Alzheimer Scotland last year, we've decided to bring Lost Cinemas indoors! Many of your favourite cinemas of Aberdeen's past will be remembered in this informal talk with plenty of illustrations.

We will be able to mention the other picter hooses that don't feature on the popular walking tour including the Kittybrewster Astoria and the Kingsway (still surviving as a Gala bingo), and still cover the old faves like the Odeon, the Gaumont and the Cosmo 2.

Popcorn will be available! Our venue is disabled-friendly, not very far from the old Odeon, Ferryhill Community Centre is situated at the bottom of Albury Road at the junction with Springbank Terrace. There is a small carpark and on-street parking (metered).
