Films at the Woodside Hotel

Films at The WoodsideOne of the most enjoyable parts of running a multi faceted operation such as The Woodside is putting on films.

A lot of us have nice TVs and Netflix subscriptions but there’s a time for going out to see a film, perhaps also to see a film with friends.

It could be a film you haven’t seen for a while, a film that’s cropped up in conversation or simply one which you missed or found too expensive at the local multiplex.

So, we see ourselves as plugging that gap of putting on a film you’d like to see in a different surrounding from home which guarantees a good night, or afternoon out.

It needs to be said that we are offering a quality cinematic experience.

We have a first class projector, screen and integrated sound system expertly installed by AVD of Dalgety Bay.

All our films are shown on either 4D or Blu-ray versions.

You can also enjoy a drink during the show!

One Friday per month we shall (mostly) show a film which has been on recent release.

One Sunday late afternoon per month we shall show a classic.

You can view our schedule here.

Admission is just £4.

Admission is free for those dining with us that night and for our residents.

Hope to see you at Films at The Woodside!

Tenement and Temple

Tenement and Temple to Play Woodside Hotel 24 July 2019

Glasgow's Tenement and Temple to Play Woodside Hotel Aberdour

Glasgow’s Tenement and Temple are to play Woodside Hotel 24 July 2019 – as part of their mini Scotland tour. This gig is guaranteed to be a night to remember. If you aren’t familiar with the name, read on…

TENEMENT & TEMPLE is a new route for Scottish songwriters Monica Queen and Johnny Smillie alighting gracefully on the hymnal stylings of pre-war Americana and the lush, widescreen Countrypolitan sounds of the 60s.

Singer Monica and guitarist Johnny were central to seminal Glasgow country-rockers Thrum.

Signing to Fire Records they recorded their debut album in San Francisco. American Music Club producer Norman Kerner was at the helm. With it, they shrugged off the prevailing trappings of Britpop and introduced mid-90s indie kids to the joys of Gram Parsons. In doing so, they pioneered the UK wave of the nascent scene in the process.

Monica Collaborations of Note…

Monica is now known though and highly regarded for her numerous guest appearances, most notably duets with Shane MacGowan, Snow Patrol and Belle and Sebastian (video below), particularly on the latter’s early classic ‘Lazy Line Painter Jane’, and for her elegant, Smillie-produced solo records.

Johnny is better known these days for his studio work, but is never happier than when playing his guitar and singing harmony to Monica.

Their new route is a free, melodic and expansive harmonic domain in which dissonance exists with simple beauty and a sense of mischief wrapped in a cassock of spirituality. The pair’s love of musical greats such as Elvis, Neil Young, Emmylou, Gillian Welch, Carter Family, Doris Day and Willie Nelson is laid bare on this, their debut collection of songs.
