About Heart of Hawick
Formerly a disused spinning mill featuring a 14-foot high Victorian waterwheel - thought to be the oldest in Southern Scotland - Tower Mill has been completely transformed into Hawick’s premier entertainment venue, returning cinema to the town for the first time in almost 25 years.
A 108 seat auditorium screens quality crowd-pleasers and family films, foreign language and arthouse showings as well as broadcasts of the latest productions from the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company and Royal Opera House. They also host some wonderful performances with live music every Monday and a live theatre programme throughout the year.
Tower Mill also encompasses a popular café bar, a spacious and relaxing environment for customers to meet up with friends and family or enjoy a moment to themselves. The café has a great wee menu to suit all. The pizzas are proved, rolled and fired onsite, with a home-made tomato ragu.
Hot dogs, ice cream, popcorn and other confectionery are also available and visitors can take food and drink into the cinema! The same goes for our drinks list of wines, local spirits and beers.
Barista style coffees from local roaster, Three Hills Coffee, are expertly served, and this focus on locality and quality of service is a great example of the café’s ethos.
