Films of Scotland
Scotland's scenery makes a striking film set. Aspects of Scottish culture have also inspired film-makers through the decades.
In the display, you can enjoy watching a selection of vintage clips of Scotland on film on a 'showreel' screen.
Scottish cinema experience
As cinema-going grew in popularity in Scotland, purpose-built buildings appeared, allowing the masses to take in the movies in comfort and style.
Queuing for a good seat, enjoying drinks and snacks and watching advertising features were all part of the Scottish cinema experience.
