The Birks Cinema Trust, with support and help from the community, and especially our amazing group of volunteers has been working hard on plans to re-open the cinema as our community begins to rebuild from the recent lock-down. The latest news is cinemas may be able to open in July or August. We'd rather be cautious and be sure we have all the necessary measures in place before we announce a date for the Birks, so more news on this soon.

We have performed a thorough review of the building contents and existing processes. On re-opening we will be implementing new ways of working that will conform to the Scottish Executive guidelines, with particular regard to a high standard of cleanliness and PPE, that will ensure a safe environment for our community and staff.

We have also done a lot of work on the building itself, thanks to our wonderful volunteers for their support with this too.

The community has raised close to £40,000 from more than 500 donations, thanks again to everyone! We're very grateful to our funders, grant-making organisations and to our friends and community here in Perthshire and further afield too.

Fiona MacEwan and her team have continued lots of inspiring and lockdown-relieving online community activities throughout lockdown. These are ongoing, please do check them out here if you’re interested.

The Birks is our community cinema and we would love to hear from you - please get in touch with us on Facebook, Instagram, or via email at support@birkscinema.co.uk and let us know what you miss, what you are looking forward to and what you would like to see when we reopen. 

Stay up-to-date with all the things birks..
