A historic cinema which has undergone a £3.5m refurbishment will re-open before Christmas.

The Picture House in Campbeltown was first opened in 1913.

The art-nouveau building closed in 2014 and has now been fully restored, with the interior based on its appearance in the 1930s.

The cinema will reopen 22 December with a screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. A number of other new releases will be shown in the following weeks.

The money for the refurbishment came from several sources including the Scottish and UK governments, the National Lottery and local fundraising.
