Annie Laurie - 4.30 p.m.

This classic Hollywood tale of Highland romance casts the wonderful Lillian Gish as a plucky young woman who comes between the warring Campbell and MacDonald clans. Although Annie Laurie (Gish) and her friend Enid first view the MacDonald clan as savages, they come to love men from the clan after chance encounters, sending ripples throughout their communities.

This screening will be accompanied with a live score by fiddle player Shona Mooney and her band, originally commissioned by Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema.

Princess Merida is a skilled archer and the daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land but her actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late. Pixar’s classic tale of female self-discovery set in an enchanting Scottish past.

This screening will be preceded by an art workshop where you’ll design and make your own Scottish shield, plus learn some Highland dance moves like Merida!
