SILVER SCREEN LOVERS are being urged to support a Buckie initiative to operate and maintain a Cinema in the town.

The Buckie Community Cinema is a community-run project that seeks to bring the latest blockbuster movies to the town and has already proven a massive hit.

For the project to fully succeed, however, it requires the backing of everyone in the community to get right behind the Buckie Regeneration Group, Moray Council and Buckie High School, who are all working hard to support the return of Cinema shows to the town.

Top-rated movies are being shown each month in the Assembly Hall at Buckie High School thanks to the mobile ‘Big Screen Films’ unit, who are next visiting the town on Sunday, March 6.

Movies on show that day will see Goosebumps (PG) being shown at 3pm, while the latest Leonardo DiCaprio film ‘The Revenant’ (15) will be screened at 6pm.

The project was the idea of pupils at Buckie High School determined to see a return of major movie shows in the town.

Teacher of Modern Studies and Art at Buckie High School, Dorothy Loveland, said: “Only if these showings are well enough attended will the project be able to continue – we have seen many people turn out to the monthly shows but we always need more to ensure the future of the cinema project.”

People can keep in touch with movie news and future showings by joining Buckie Community Cinema on Facebook.
