Nice little Film Theatre on the banks of the River Nith, It shows films old and new, you can even book for a kids party, an adults party or have a private screening of what ever film you want to bring.

This centre was well laid out, the information was clear and their was a very interesting model of Dumfries at the time Robert Burns lived there. He did so much it's hard to believe he was only 37 when he died.
