Hippodrome Boness has a full programme of films for all ages and tastes and offers a cinema-going experience a wonderful world away from the multiplex.
At the Hippodrome you will find a warm welcome for all, baby-friendly screenings, 'Jeely Jar' screenings for kids, a 'Hippodrome for Schools' programme, special events, Q+As and workshops, buggy parking, booster seats for wee ones, baby-changing facilities, 'Cuppa' screenings with coffee or tea and cake included in your ticket price, and free parking in Bo'ness town centre.
There is also a cafe and licensed bar.
The Hippodrome Cafe and Licensed Bar opens 45mins before each screening and closes at the start of the screening. Popcorn, ice-cream, sweets, tea, coffee and soft drinks are available from the Cafe. Beer, wine and spirits are available from the Licensed Bar and it is possible to take your drink with you to your cinema seat. Children and young people are not permitted to approach the bar. No person under the age of 18 years is permitted to purchase alcohol.
A baby changing room is located on the ground floor and there is an accessible toilet.
Step ups for toddlers in the ground floor toilets, booster seats available for wee ones.
We are happy to warm milk for parents. Please ask at the cafe.
The Hippodrome is in Bo'ness which lies on the south bank of the Firth of Forth. Travelling from the west, exit the M9 at J5 onto the A905 then take the A904 into Bo'ness. From the east, exit at J3 onto the A803 then take the A904 into Bo'ness. The nearest train station is Linlithgow. Buses to Bo'ness are operated by First Edinburgh.
In the Hippodrome's heyday youngsters could get their cinema ticket in exchange for a jeely (jam) jar. We have named our Saturday morning screenings of well-loved family films and kids' classics in honour of this tradition. Once a season we'll give you the chance to revive the customÃâ¦ Look out for Hippodrome 'Jeely Jar Specials' when you can bring a clean jeely jar with matching lid and get two tickets for the price of one. The jars will be re-used for jam-making in the Georgian Kitchen at Callendar House. But please don't bring a jam jar every week: we can't make that much jam!
