MSP Hails Buckie Cinema Success

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has hailed last weekend’s cinema showing in Buckie as a great success.

The SNP MSP attended the first showing, which was Hotel Transylvania 2 for younger viewers, with his young god-daughter, who judged it a success.

The cinema showings are the culmination of a process started when three Modern Studies pupils at Buckie Community High School wrote to Mr Stevenson lobbying for Buckie to have a cinema once again. Stewart took the matter up with Film Mobile Scotland, a company who bring cinema experiences to those communities without their own cinema, and Director Ian Brown stated he would be extremely interested in bringing this service to Buckie, but required the support of the local community to do so.

Mr Stevenson then involved the Buckie Regeneration Group and local councillors Gordon McDonald and Sonya Warren, along with Buckie Community High School Rector Neil Johnston, and the result was last weekend’s offering. The cinema will return on 6 December with the new Bond film ‘Spectre’.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson said:

“I think this can be described as a great success, particularly if the reaction of my young viewing companion is anything to go by. Furry monsters seemed to be a great hit with the youngsters who turned out to see the first film in Buckie for decades.

“Next month, the latest James Bond film comes to Buckie and I’m sure that will prove a hit with all ages.

“This has been a real lesson in what community action can achieve and I’m pleased to have played a small part in making it happen. It’s now up to the people of Buckie to support their local cinema.”
