Scotland’s love of cinema and the film makers’ love of Scotland is celebrated in an exhibition at the Orkney Library and Archive, Kirkwall.
The 8 pop up banners from the National Library of Scotland tell the story of Scots going to the cinema – the pictures through the decades.
The exhibition is located in the entrance area of the library so is easily accessible.
My one complaint – and this is to the designers of the banners is that the colour of the print used is not good for people with visual impairments.
The pale red makes it difficult for some people to read the information.
There is also a fun projectionist box with items to be picked up and explored. Even the cartoons that you could hire for home movies – I mention this because my dad used to do this and kids from round about would come into our house to watch them.
I have a lot of favourite films which feature Scotland. Here’s one with a fantastic musical score by Mark Knopfler.
What’s your favourite film about Scotland or made in Scotland?
