For the first time since the launch of Fraserburgh Movie Nights, residents and visitors to the town will have the choice of three films to pick from this month.

Tickets are now available for Disney blockbuster “Big Hero 6”, fairytale remake “Into the Woods” and biographical drama “The Theory of Everything” which will be shown in Dalrymple Hall on Saturday March 14 at 1.30pm, 4pm and 7pm.

The films are being shown courtesy of Fraserburgh Junior Arts Society as part of Aberdeenshire Council’s Regeneration Plan to improve entertainment facilities in the town centre.

“Big Hero 6” is an action­packed comedy­adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada who learns to harness his genius thanks to his brilliant brother and like­minded friends.

When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion, a robot named Baymax, and transforms the group into a band of high­tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.

“Into the Woods” is a modern musical twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales.

The humorous and heartfelt plot follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel, all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.

“The Theory of Everything”, starring Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne, is the extraordinary story of one of the world’s greatest living minds, renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking.

Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth­shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age but together with his fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde who he went on to marry, he embarks on his most ambitious scientific work.

Tickets are being distributed in advance of the screenings by Fraserburgh Junior Arts Society at Dalrymple Hall and R&S Dyga newsagents on Broad Street, Fraserburgh or can be purchased on the door.

Tickets are priced at £5.50 for adults and £4.50 for children and concessions.

Family tickets (two adults and two children) can be purchased for £18.
