Launch! On The Sea With Scotland’s Lifeboats dives into archive film and video of RNLI crews (including those in Lerwick and Aith), with an immersive soundtrack from some of the UK’s most exciting contemporary musicians - Jason Singh, Jenny Sturgeon, Arun Ghosh and John Ellis.

Directed by award-winning curator Shona Thomson, the film is created entirely from rarely seen footage of Scotland’s RNLI.

The screening will be introduced by musician Jenny Sturgeon. 

Running time: 1h05, including ads and trailers.


When booking tickets, please be aware the box office system is set up to automatically block off seats around each booking, keeping the appropriate distance between customers. If you're booking for a group, please make sure all the people in that group are in the same household (including extended households as defined here), and if you want to see a film with someone from your household, you'll need to book your tickets at the same time if you want to sit together. Face coverings must be worn in the cinema unless you're eating or drinking, and we're requesting that customers take their own rubbish with them at the end of the film, and put it in the bins provided. Cinemas will be thoroughly cleaned between each screening, and there is hand sanitiser available throughout the building.
