Prestwick's oldest cinema is rolling back the years as it prepares to bring back 35mm film screenings.

The Broadway cinema, in the town's main street, has had a Cinemeccanica Victoria 5 projector donated to the project by projectionist Darren Manson in Thurso.

The Victoria 5 has been brought back to life in the Broadway, with film now being run through a projector in the cinema for the first time since One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in 1976.

A Friends of the Broadway spokesperson said: "We would like to thank Darren once again for his incredibly kind donation, and give an extra special thank you to our official maintenance officer Keith Gerard.

"Keith has been working endlessly these past few weeks restoring the projector, and this incredible achievement would not have been possible without his remarkable skill, dedication, and passion for our project.

"Bringing back 35mm screenings is an amazing opportunity. As the world of cinema evolves with an increasing appreciation for analogue film, we are seeing an unprecedented rise in demand for the return of reels, and the Broadway will be perfectly placed to bring this technology back and preserve the art of projection for future generations.

"We are almost there. With some more testing and hard work behind-the-scenes, we will soon be ready for more major developments to follow in the coming months.

"For now, the Broadway once again echoes to a sound not heard inside our walls for almost half a century.

"Let the show begin."
