When will The Fullarton be open?

In light of recent announcements on easing of lockdown restrictions we would like to outline our position with regard to re-opening The Fullarton for Cinema screenings.
The Government has given permission for Cinemas to open. However we will not consider opening The Fullarton until Social Distancing is reduced or removed and it is safe for our volunteer staff and customers.

We hope to be able to open with a limited programme in the Autumn but you will appreciate that this cannot be guaranteed.
Live Theatre will not return until much later - probably not until next year.

We are keen to open as soon as it is safe and viable.

We hope you understand our position and we look forward to welcoming you back.


The Management Committee

The Fullarton

The Fullarton (formerly Lochside) Theatre is a professionally equipped Independent Cinema and Theatre in the heart of south-west Scotland, managed and staffed entirely by part-time volunteers.

Refurbishment Programme

With the current refurbishment programme being the first major project carried out at the theatre during the 17 years of operation, various sources of possible funding were identified to cover the majority of the costs. Applications were made and funding arrangements were agreed from a number of sources. The theatre was pleased to receive funding from the following sources and would like to express grateful thanks to the various bodies, without whose generosity the theatre refurbishment would not have proceeded.
