  • MOVIEMAN - JAMES NARIN'S 60 YEARS OF CINEMA - 1979, Group 5 Production in Scotland. A film by Ron Miller. The cinema manager is the often forgotten link between film-makers and their audience. MOVIEMAN follows the career of one such showman, James S. Nairn who, for almost all his working life, aspired to the highest standards in cinema presentation. Starting in 1915 as an apprentice operator in the Govan Cinema Glasgow, he was quickly promoted and in 1924 was managing the Savoy Cinema in Edinburgh. In 1929 he was manager of the Ritz, Edinburgh when it opened with the newly-arrived talkies. During a career which took him to Stirling, and then in the forties to Inverness, where the Playhouse Cinema became his great passion, he was continuously involved with the ever challenging technical aspects of the cinema and made local centered newsreels so locals could come to the Playhouse and see themselves on the screen. Despite some illness, two eye operations and a disastrous fire which destroyed the Playhouse, James Nairn continued to display the energy, interest and spirit of a man many years his junior. Using everything from historical footage to contemporary interviews, MOVIEMAN takes an affectionate look at a man in love with his work and with the public he served.
