• The New Phoenix Cinema at the Pickaquoy Centre, Orkney

Cinemas

From the latest Hollywood blockbusters, to small independent and arthouse films, Orkney’s cinema lovers have plenty of opportunity to experience big screen entertainment.

Kirkwall’s Pickaquoy Centre houses the fully digital New Phoenix Cinema, a superb 243-seater theatre showing a fantastically varied programme of film.

Meanwhile, Stromness is the home of the voluntarily run West Side Cinema, which offers an incredibly diverse range of films and documentaries.

Orkney is also a regular stop for the travelling Screen Machine, which takes cinema to some of Scotland’s most remote communities.
