Linlithgow Film Society

Linlithgow Film Society was founded in 1973 when the local cinema closed.  With support from the Town Council, the Society started with two borrowed projectors and a temporary screen in Linlithgow Burgh Halls.  Over the years the Society has progressed to the most up to date projection and sound equipment available and the comfort of raked seating in the theatre at Linlithgow Academy.

In addition to the programme shown in Linlithgow Academy Theatre the Society takes films out to the wider community , to residential care homes, sheltered housing and the local hospital and Day Care  Centre.  If you wish to help in the community aspect of the Society please contact us.

Linlithgow Film Society is a member of the British Federation of Film Societies (B.F.F.S.)  It has twice won the B.F.F.S National Awards for Community Service (the only Society to have done so), received three B.F.F.S. (Scotland) awards and has previously won the West Lothian’s  “Arts Organisation of the Year “.
