This fantastic pre-art deco picture palace was first opened in 1912. For decades it was the place to see the latest Hollywood and British blockbusters. It closed in the 1980’s after a short spell as a bingo hall. Now – thanks to a £2.1 million restoration project – the Hippodrome is open again, lovingly restored to its 1926 heyday. With a great program of blockbusters, art house and classic favorites, there’s bound to be something for everyone.

Charmingly cinema, the oldest Scottish one, in combination with a committed group of enthusiasts and a variety of world class and local musicians to accompany silent films from all over the world.

Lucky enough to have this venue right on our doorstep and it is fantastic. The Hippodrome has been restored to its former glory and shows a mixture of cinema listings for young and old. The interior has retained a nostalgic feel and there is a...More

Attended a 'cuppa showing' with my mum at this genuinely retro cinema in Bo'ness. Lovely people, comfy seats, and lots of period charm.
