West Side Cinema

Established in 2012, West Side Cinema offers the edge of world cinema in a relaxed and social atmosphere – themed music, cabaret style table seating and a ‘bring your own’ policy. We screen short films with every feature film: fiction and documentary from around the world.

We have a loyal audience and reputation for high quality and engaging programming. Our event driven model has brought filmmakers and screenwriters to Orkney, delivered quality workshops and talks free of charge, and collaborations with local festivals, organisations and businesses.

We are voluntary run and depend on the enormous amount of free time and dedication given by the committee and others in the community.
