New History Event Announcement

Updated: Aug 12, 2023

We are incredibly excited to announce we will be hosting our second official history event in partnership with the Grain Exchange in Ayr!

The event will begin on Tuesday 8th February in The Grain Exchange on Ayr High Street. The displays on show will be expanded and enhanced versions of the two shown at Doors Open Days 2021 in the Broadway: The History of the Broadway and Other Cinemas of Ayr & Prestwick.

The event will be open for two weeks until Sunday 20th and will be showcased all across the ground floor with photographs, documents and cinema memorabilia from the golden age of cinema across our communities. The Grain Exchange is operated by South Ayrshire Council and they have done incredible work in preserving local heritage and inspiring community groups like ourselves.

The History of the Broadway display will take you on a journey through our cinema's past, from opening in April 1935 through the golden age of cinema to the present day. For The Other Cinemas of Ayr & Prestwick we will also feature include Prestwick Picture House, The Gaumont, The Green's Playhouse, ODEON Ayr, The Orient Cinema, The Picture Palace, The Regal Cinema and the Ritz Cinema.

We are delighted to partner with the Grain Exchange for this historic event and can't wait to open the days next Tuesday to welcome you all again for a trip down memory lane!

See you there!
