Made in My Toun is a Scotland-wide tour of archive film screenings featuring special guests exploring what our towns and cities mean to us today.
On tour from Ayr to Aberdeen, Made in My Toun is part of the British Film Institute's Britain on Film project: making thousands of newly digitised film and TV titles from archives across the UK available to view online. Join curator Shona Thomson in celebrating the ‘touns’ that have changed the face of Scotland.
Ayr in full 1960s colour is one of the films in the programme for this live cinema event, alongside prewar ambitions for Scotland’s heavy industries and the Central Belt’s new towns.
The Royal Burgh has always had a healthy respect for its key role in the nation’s cultural and equine heritage. This has supported the town to grow well beyond the 20th century version on screen. Honest men and bonnie lasses are welcome – as is everyone! – to join in the post-show conversation about how this renaissance bears up to a glorious past.
