Birks Cinema first opened in 1939 until 1982 when it was then open as an amusement hall. It closed in 2004 allowing the building to fall into disrepair. Friends of the Birks Cinema purchased the art deco building with the aim of restoring it to its former glory.
Comment TV and Highland Perthshire News have been following the rebuilding of the art deco Birks cinema in Aberfeldy up to its re-opening on 19th April. These three episodes from Comment show the work in progress up to this month’s opening night.
