Going to the pictures: Scotland at the cinema

Going to the pictures: Scotland at the cinemaCelebrate Scotland's love affair with the movies in our summer exhibition, open daily from 15 June to 28 October. Explore the story of cinema in Scotland for the past 120 years. From the first screening in 1896 to modern-day blockbusters, we present a century of Scots and Scotland on the big screen. Original footage from the Scottish Screen Archive and elsewhere ranges from clips from famous movies to local films of community life in Scotland. As well as how 'Scottishness' has been portrayed on celluloid, the exhibition charts the changing pattern of 'going to the pictures' - that's 'cinema-going' in Scotland, in case you're not sure
