Screen Machine is finally heading back to Arran later this month.

Scotland’s mobile cinema will be in Brodick from July 21 to 24.

With Scotland set to potentially drop to Level 0 this month, organisers are keeping a close eye on how this will affect the service.

Ahead of the visit Screen Machine have launched on online survey to gauge how customers feel about capacity and seating.

Among the questions being asked are: should numbers be restricted or should booking seats be introduced?

A spokesman said: ‘It’s likely that at some point in the coming weeks the Scottish Government will remove the requirement for social distancing in cinemas and other public spaces.

‘When that happens we want to be sure that our audiences will continue to feel confident to visit the Screen Machine, so we’d love to have your thoughts on how you’ll feel about this.’

A new discount category, Welcome21, has been introduced for frontline and essential workers, and anyone whose circumstances have been affected by the pandemic.

This will remain in place until the end of 2021. All other ticket prices remain the same.
