Hippodrome Cinema, Bo’ness: Silent Cinema Festival
We are delighted to have been chosen for Tesco’s Bags of Help!
If successful we will be able to improve our spaces for all by installing black curtains around the stage which will make it more flexible for community use. We will also help create level access into the building with a new portable wheelchair ramp.
We would be so grateful if anyone shopping at Tesco in Bo’ness in the coming weeks would vote for our great cause – we would love to be able to make the improvements to the theatre so that more local people can come and enjoy this wonderful community asset.
Always forgetting your bags? Great! Just remember to ask for a token at the checkout.
The Barony Players are delighted to announce our Spring 2018 production as Graham Linehan’s stage adaption of the Ealing comedy classic, The Ladykillers. Rehearsals are well underway as is a traditional “Barony set build”. Tickets are now on sale via our online Box Office or by calling 07541 346639 and are already selling fast.
The Ladykillers is a classic black comedy; a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing. Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus’ brilliantly conceived heist job. The police are left stumped but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?
