Going To The Pictures

Timespan launches ‘Going to The Pictures’: a series of free archival film screenings happening on Saturday mornings (11:00-13:00) during February and March 2023 as advertised below. Sourced from the Moving Image Archive (MIA), the films portray community life and work in Helmsdale and East Sutherland from the 1930s to the 1970s, presenting social issues and developments in the Highlands which still resonate today. 

Following the screenings, participants are entitled to a 20% discount on Timespan Riverside Cafe food menu and will be invited to attend an afternoon oral history session to collect people’s knowledge, experiences and memories of local history.

The PMA library and archive will be open all day for browsing our collections.

No booking is required
