Chalmers Bathgate

The property in Bathgate was acquired by the current owner in 2010.  The cinema occupies a stunning B-Listed church in the heart of the town and caters for live music events along with film viewings.

A second cinema was purchased in the traditional seaside town of Arbroath, in 2014. Chalmers Filmhouse also caters for film viewings and live music events.  It also offers a huge development opportunity for a new owner, subject to planning, with potential to re-open the adjoining restaurant which is currently closed.

Tony Spence, Associate Director of Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, comments “The current owner has owned the businesses for around eleven years and is now looking to sell due to retirement. The Bathgate location is predominantly trading as a cinema but also hosts various live music shows throughout the year. This is a side of the business that has huge potential and could be developed further. The Arbroath business trades well and is very popular with locals and tourists.”
