Stevenson Welcomes Cinema Back to Buckie

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson will this weekend welcome cinema back to the largest town in Banffshire after an absence of many years.

Film Mobile Scotland will be bringing two screenings to Buckie on Sunday, to be followed early next month with the latest Bond movie Spectre.

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. The SNP MSP 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 is Sunday’s two-film offering; Hotel Transylvania 2 for younger viewers at 3.00pm, and The Martian with Matt Damon at 6.00pm.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson said:

“This has been a real community effort in action and all those involved in bringing this project to this stage deserve huge thanks, but none more so that the Buckie High pupils who started the whole thing off by writing to me.

“I’m looking forward immensely to cinema returning to Buckie and I hope that the town will turn out and support this latest enterprise.”
