HOW TO SUPPORT

Want to play your part in launching a refurbished and reimagined Belmont Cinema?

If you believe that Aberdeen deserves a truly excellent independent cinema venue — with space for events, creative educational programmes and a fantastic bar space — then supporting this campaign is the first step to making it happen.

01.

WHAT'S THE VISION?

A reimagined and refurbished The Belmont Cinema, reopened for the cultural and educational benefit of Aberdeen and those who live here — ensuring that an inclusive and accessible cinema / cultural space is available in our city centre for many years to come.

We want to create a venue that makes people fall in love with the cinema experience all over again. 

02.

WHAT'S THE PLAN?

The plan is to refurbish all areas of the building and reopen The Belmont Cinema with 3 cinema screens, a basement bar space and an education and learning suite on the top floor — where The Belmont's education & filmmaking programme will be delivered by strategic partner Station House Media Unit (shmu)

To achieve this, we are working closely with with TINTO Architecture, FortyTwo Studio and Mustard Studio consultants.

Architectural and interior design plans are in development — see our Latest for updates.

03.

WHAT DO WE NEED?

We need your support to transform The Belmont, so it can open as a vibrant focal point for the local community.

We had set a target of £2 million, we want to exceed this target to ensure a long-term future for The Belmont and deliver the very best customer experience for many years.

We have been successful in securing significant funding from various sources, but to be successful, your support is vital. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. Your incredible support will help ensure a long-term future for the venue.
