The Bo’ness Hippodrome picked up a ‘Highly Commended’ award on Tuesday evening (16 May) as part of the Scottish Hospitality Awards 2023 hosted in Glasgow.

The four-star visitor attraction, which was originally built in 1912 and reopened in 2009 after extensive refurbishment, was rated against cinemas across Scotland and voted for by the public in the ‘Best Cinema Experience’ category.

Judges stated that the awards ‘celebrate the dedication, skill and customer service of the professionals that work within the hospitality industry’.

The judges also said: “The awards will provide a platform to thank and honour those who have contributed to making Scotland a friendly and welcoming place, enhancing the country’s reputation nationally and internationally." 

Leader of Falkirk Council, Cllr Cecil Meiklejohn said: “The Hippodrome cinema in Bo’ness offers a great experience for its customers and being recognised like this, is a great testament of how well it is regarded by its customers. Our venues continue to rack up awards nationally and ensure we have a great offer for both local residents and visitors alike.”
