A familiar large blue lorry rolled into Lochgilphead recently, offering the latest movies to the public for two nights.

The cinema on wheels parked itself outside Kilmory resource centre for movie buffs to enjoy on Tuesday July 10 and Wednesday July 11, with screenings of Gnomeo and Juliet sequel, Sherlock Gnomes; superhero epic Avengers: Infinity War Part I; and LGBT rom-com, Love, Simon.

The Screen Machine has a busy few weeks ahead. After leaving Lochgilphead the mobile cinema moved to Jura, then Tarbert, and is parking up on Isle of Arran today (July 20).

The Screen Machine will roll back into Lochgilphead in January 2019.
