Fraserburgh Cinema will spring into action again this month with the screening of ‘Shaun the Sheep’ and ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ on Saturday, April 25.

Dalrymple Hall in Fraserburgh will host the screenings courtesy of Fraserburgh Junior Arts Society at 3.30pm and 7pm respectively.

From the creators of ‘Wallace and Gromit’ and ‘Chicken Run’ comes the beloved ‘Shaun the Sheep Movie’.

When Shaun’s mischief inadvertently leads to the farmer being taken away from the farm, Shaun, Bitzer and the flock have to go into the big city to rescue him, setting the stage for an epic adventure.

‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel) and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina.

Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, has only a single remaining vacancy, posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig).

As the demands of a traditional Indian wedding threaten to engulf them all, an unexpected way forward presents itself.

The films are being shown as part of Aberdeenshire Council’s Regeneration

Plan to improve entertainment facilities in the town centre.

Fraserburgh Junior Arts Society has been delivering a successful movie programme for many years.

Equipment and distribution of the films are handled by Film Mobile Scotland.

Fraserburgh Junior Arts Society Secretary, Alice Irvine, said: “We are very excited to host another movie night with two new cinema releases this month Shaun the Sheep and The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

“We hope Fraserburgh audiences will continue to support our cinema, keeping up the numbers attending afternoon shows and increasing evening audience sizes.”

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.
