Walsingham Picture Palace October screening: Sunshine on Leith

Our next Walsingham Picture Palace presentation is on Tuesday 28th October at 7.30pm SUNSHINE ON LEITH PG

Davy and Ally are two recently discharged British Army servicemen, returning to their homes and families in Edinburgh after a tour in Afghanistan. Dexter Fletcher directs Sunshine on Leith; a jubilant, heartfelt musical about the power of home, the hearth, family and love. It is the tale of one tight-knit family, and the three couples bound to it, as they experience the joys and heartache that punctuate all relationships. And they do it all while singing to the euphoric music of The Proclaimers.

‘I shed a tear within the first 10 minutes, and spent the rest of the movie beaming like a gibbering, love-struck fool.’ Mark Kermode for The Observer

Road Closure Warning

Please note that Guild Street (from the junction with Knight Street) will be closed for 50m in a westerly direction between 6 and 10 October 2014 in order to remove a dis-used electrical service to the old road signs. Diversions will be in place.
