Buchan folk are being urged to cheer up their February by going along to see two films at New Deer Public Hall.

What We Did On Our Holiday (12A) and archive film 1962 Holiday at New Deer, will be screened in the village on Sunday, February 22, at 4pm.

The archive film is silent and only lasts about five minutes but shows life in New Deer more than 50 years ago.

This should be an extremely interesting film for all those who have connections with the village.

Meanwhile, What We Did On Our Holiday is an engaging British comedy.

Doug (David Tennant) and Abi (Rosamund Pike) are taking their three children on a trip to Scotland for Doug’s father Gordie’s(Billy Connolly) birthday party.

They are in the midst of a difficult divorce, and have asked the kids to keep it a secret from their extended family.

But as the inevitable feuds kick-off in a completely unexpected turn of events involving the children causes further tensions to rise to the surface.

With the repercussions that ensue, hilarious and emotional in equal measure, the family are forced to put aside their differences and work together or else risk losing what they hold most dear.

Commenting on the latest screenings, voluntary promoter, Sue Robertson, said: “This is a lovely family movie and a bit of nostalgia for a Sunday afternoon.

“Ice cream, popcorn and soft drinks will also be on sale.”

Tickets for the screening are priced at £5 each. These can be purchased from the Pharmacy and Food for Thought on (01771) 644217/644366.

Alternatively, you can pay at the door on the afternoon, but don’t delay!
