Hire Robert Burns Centre Film Theatre

The Robert Burns Centre DumfriesThe Perfect Setting …

Situated in a converted 18th century mill on the grassy banks of the River Nith and boasting state of the art projection facilities, the Robert Burns Centre provides the perfect setting for any event you wish to host.

The Film Theatre can help with all types of events, including: private screenings, parties, cultural events, lectures, workshops, AGMs, networking and business events, cast and crew screenings.



If you would like to book the cinema for a private hire please email with your request.

At current times groups from 3 households can sit together unless a larger number represents a single household. Other groups from 3 households can also attend but they must be socially distanced from all other groups. If you wish to proceed with your booking you can download a seating plan so you can allocate seats to your guests. Please note that social distancing must be adhered to at all times.

If you are bringing food we have tables for your use but only one guest can visit the table at a time. For your convenience and safety we suggest all food is handed out in goodie bags and left on each guest's seats prior to the start of the film.

Hires are available in two hour slots but you are welcome to set up 30 minutes  before the start of the hire. You also have 15 minutes clean-up afterwards
