PETERHEAD’s cinema will be showing another two blockbuster movies this weekend for all ages to enjoy, following the success of the film showings two weeks ago.
Bob Strachan of Peterhead Theatre Users Management Group said this week that he had been delighted with the response from the Blue Toon public following an appeal in the Buchanie to use the facility or lose it.
Mr Strachan said: “Saturday was really good and we actually made money!
“We had 214 people in the theatre for the afternoon showing and 90 at night which was just fantastic, but there’s plenty room for more,” he said.
“We have two super films lined up once again for this Saturday and hopefully we can get two packed houses.
“I think once people are aware that the films are of equal quality to that shown in the cinemas in Aberdeen - and now that they know that it’s here in town - our numbers will hopefully start to pick up,” he added.
This weekend’s first screening, on Saturday, September 24, will be The Zookeeper (PG), which will be shown at 3pm.
This film, which runs 102 minutes, features the animals at the Franklin Park Zoo who love their kind-hearted caretaker Griffin Keyes (Kevin James).
Finding himself more comfortable with a lion than a lady, Griffin decides the only way to get a girl in his life is to leave the zoo and find a more glamorous job.
The animals, in a panic, decide to break their time-honoured code of silence and reveal their biggest secret: they can talk! To keep Griffin from leaving, they decide to teach him the rules of courtship - animal style!
Super 8 (12A), will be screened at 6pm and runs for 112 minutes.
Master of mystery J.J Abrams brings us another film shrouded in secrecy.
Super 8 tells the story of a young group of amateur film makers who after witnessing a spectacular train crash and capturing whatever it was that escaped from the military cargo car on their Super 8 camera.
This film is a love letter to early films of Steven Spielberg such as Close Encounters Of The Third Kind E.T, dealing with similar issues such as youth, broken families American suburbia and the unknown.
Tickets for both screenings are priced at £6 for adults and £5 concessions and popcorn and snacks will be available for each screening.
