Cinema to star on TV
A film crew will be taking over the Bo’ness Hippodrome later this month to film a major new series for Amazon/ BBC studios.
The surrounding area of Hope Street and Hamilton Lane in Bo’ness will be closed for two days, as Nice and Accurate Productions take over the historic building, which is Scotland’s oldest purpose-built picture-house.
The company says they will be using the Bo’ness Hippodrome on Monday, February 14 and Tuesday, February 15.
They will also be using space inside the library and town hall to accommodate extras as well as a couple of local businesses on Hope Street, although their base will be in the museum at Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway.
