LeithLate, Cinetopia and Leith Theatre present a special afternoon screening of the 1988 documentary film 'Leithers' by Alistair Scott exploring life in Leith in the 1980s.

'Leithers' documents the people who lived and worked in Leith during the eighties and examines the changing socio-economic landscape of Leith at that time. The film screening will be introduced by film-maker Alistair Scott who is Associate Professor of Film & TV at Edinburgh Napier University, and will be followed by a short panel discussion about Leith's past, present and future. The screening will be accompanied by a short compilation of archive footage of Leith from the National Library of Scotland's Moving Image Archive.

Doors open at 1.30pm and the screening starts at 2pm. Food and drink will be available. Book tickets with our new pay-what-you-can ticket scheme.

This event is part of LeithLate's Leith100 programme, supported by City of Edinburgh Council and Baillie Gifford, which marks 100 years since the amalgamation of Leith with the City of Edinburgh.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Leithers Sunday Matinee are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
