Cosmos Cinema Club
Cosmos Cinema Club builds on many years operating a mobile planetarium (Cosmos Planetarium) across Scotland and the north of England. Government restrictions introduced to contain the Covid-19 coronavirus have stalled mobile planetarium operations for the foreseeable future but, through a new partnership with Indy Cinema Group, ASSET aims to continue to deliver awesome audio visual content in a Covid secure way.
Indy Cinema Group are highly experienced in delivering large screen events and are therefore a natural long-term partner for ASSET.
Our launch event consists of drive-in screenings of family favourite Christmas films plus a special flat screen version of Capcom Go! the Apollo Story from NSC Creative. We are very excited about the possibility of working with Indy on future events including more themed drive-ins and stargazing camps.
Members of Cosmos Cinema Club (cost £10 for 2020) are entitled to club discounts on the ticket price of screenings.
Here is all the information you will need for the Cosmos Cinema Club launch event at Fife Airport over the weekend 4th – 6th December 2020.

Our screen is rated up to wind speeds of 24mph, and we may cancel if it looks like you won’t get home because of snow, if it’s foggy, or if equipment breaks down. We will assess the weather each day and cancel a screening if we need to. So long as you provided email and mobile phone details when you booked, you will receive a message to say the show is cancelled along with a web link so you can reschedule for any other showing (of any other same-price film) without time limit. The showtime will also display as ‘cancelled’ on the website.
