In a weeks’ time What’s On will be changing. We will no longer be preparing our exhaustive lists of events – but look out for new mini-lists, one-off features and plenty of tips to help you fill your days (and nights).
If you are organising an event that you would like us to mention, please submit it via our Submit Your Story and we shall do our best to help.
In the meantime, enjoy everything our capital city has to offer this week – but please check details with the organisers before setting out.
Filmhouse Junior: screenings for a younger audience. Today’s film is Happy Feet (U): Emperor penguins have lived for centuries with one simple goal: to find their soulmates through their own unique song. But young Mumble despairs that he might be the worst singer in the world. Fortunately, he just happens to be a brilliant tap dancer. George Miller drapes his story about a young penguin’s struggles with being ‘different’ in striking visuals, invigorating songs and lively characterisations, laced with a serious subtext about the damage being done to the icy wastes of Antarctica by mankind. 11am, Filmhouse, Lothian Road. Tickets cost £4 per person, big or small, and may be purchased from the Filmhouse box office in person, by calling 0131 228 2688 or online here.
