Arts / Cinema tickets now on sale for Mareel’s reopening

As Shetland along with most of Scotland is moving towards greater freedoms once again, cinema tickets can be booked online for Mareel as of today (Tuesday).

The arts venue is set to re-open its doors on Friday 21 May, including the café bar which will be open 10am to 8pm Wednesdays to Sundays.

Shetland Arts said the cinema’s opening week will feature a selection of award-winning blockbusters including Nomadland, and Godzilla vs. Kong but also the gritty independent film County Lines as well as Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon.

The week of 28 May includes The Dig, starring Carey Milligan and Ralph Fiennes. Based on real events it follows the discovery of an Anglo-Saxon ship burial in the English countryside during the 1930s.

In the Screen Horizons slot, the focus turns to the streets of Paris in gritty crime drama Les Misérables, where a police officer soon finds himself caught up in corruption and violence.

Screen Classics brings back feel good 80s favourite Dirty Dancing, starring a young Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

Finally, there’s Scoob!, a new animated adventure featuring everyone’s favourite ghost hunters.
