Jeely Jar Screening: 2-for-1 ticket deal

Jeely Jar Screenings start at 11:00am on selected Saturday mornings. In the Hippodrome's heyday youngsters could get their cinema ticket in exchange for a jeely (jam) jar. Once a season we'll give you the chance to revive the tradition. Look out for the regular 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. Jeely Jar screenings are marked with a J in our listings.
