The world’s smallest drive-in cinema

November 15, 2009

Cromarty on the Black Isle is all set to create a new world record next month. Plans are afoot to create the world’s smallest drive-in cinema. Not only that, but a floating one too.

Film festival organiser Dave Newman has hooked up with local farmer John Henderson who operates the ferry to create the one-off event on Tuesday 18th November. Says Dave, “We’ve been running films in Cromarty using different venues and thought a drive-in movie on a boat would be a great way to launch the film festival in December.”
Normally travellers try to spot the famous Cromarty Firth dolphins on the journey, but this time two lucky winners will be treated to a showing of “The Maggie,” a 1950s film about the Scottish owner of a rusty old puffer who hoodwinks a rich American industrialist into hiring his boat. The ferry, which runs between Cromarty and Nigg, will carry the winners and up to 10 foot-passengers on this exclusive one-off journey.
