The Old Power House at the National Mining Museum has once again been transformed into a cinema for ‘Cinema Sundays’.

Screening both classic and recently released movies, Cinema Sundays will cater for families and grown-ups with afternoon and evening screenings.

Gillian Rankin, Marketing and Events Officer at the museum said: “We’re so excited to be able to bring the cinema experience back to Newtongrange! We kicked off our 2015 programme recently with Disney’s ‘Brave’ and it was lovely to see the children all dressed-up as their favourite princesses!

“Our screening of Frozen Sing-a-long sold out within four days of going on sale and we’ve had to schedule a second screening! We can see it’s going to be popular with the wee ones!

“We do hope that the whole community get behind the idea, come along and make it worthwhile!”

The cinema continues tomorrow (Sunday) with Frozen Sing-a-longs at 11am and 2pm (sold out), with The Fault in Our Stars showing at 6pm. Adult tickets £5.50, child £3.50, 0131 663 7519.
