PUPILS across the Capital will be going to the cinema for free during National Schools Film Week.

The event will run from November 1 to 9 and will see a total of 2500 screenings take place at 570 cinemas across the UK, including Edinburgh’s Omni Vue, Wester Hailes Odeon and the Filmhouse.

Richard Napier, headteacher of Gilmerton Primary, said: “It’s a social event for ­everybody. Some children don’t get to go to the cinema regularly.”
