National Library of Scotland at the movies

With 2012 newly upon us, work is progressing on our exhibition for the summer which – in succession to the current Beyond Shakespeare – will explore Scotland at the movies.


Already there has been much viewing of film clips from the collections, examination of old cinema artefacts, and unearthing of books, fan magazines, photographs and posters. The exhibition will look at the experience of going to the cinema in Scotland over the years, and how Scotland has appeared on film courtesy of our local filmmakers and imaginative folk from further afield.

Those who like a wee song and dance on a grey winter day may care to take a peek at this forthcoming attraction – ladies and gentlemen, we present – Brigadoon!
