Community Cinema

Our free Community Cinema shows a wide range of entertaining films from family classics and slapstick comedy to hard-hitting dramas and thought-provoking documentaries. Films are regularly shown on a Monday evening following our Open Door Meals, during holiday periods and at other times. Special screenings include visits from film directors, actors and others talking about their involvement or taking part in a Q&A. Please go to our specific Grassmarket Community Project website here for all the information you need about films, film-related events and details of how to book you seat.

Most films are run on an open door policy. Very occasionally we ask people to book ahead on Eventbrite if we expect a film to be very busy e.g. special screenings. Check here for latest listings. Donations gratefully received from those who are able to give.
