CINEMA-Goers in Ellon turned out in force on Sunday to support the latest film venture in the town.

The Victoria Hall hosted its second cinema day this year with a double bill of the critically-acclaimed musical Les Miserables and children’s favourite Tinkerbell.

The screening was aimed at gauging the level of local interest in bringing films to the hall on a regular basis.

Victoria Hall management committee secretary Keith Hart told the Times: “We had a really good turn out for both films with Les Miserables exceeding all expectations as they kept arriving right up to the 6pm start time.

“Our target was for 100 for each film and we had 132 for Tinker Bell and 164 for Les Miserables - reason indeed for the Management Committee to celebrate.

“Les Miserables certainly lived up to its launch hype.

Both showings started with a trailer for the next event on Sunday, March 17. The afternoon film was preceded by a preview of Wreck it Ralph and the evening show by trailers of Hyde Park on Hudson and Lincoln.

The audience voted with a show of hands for Lincoln for the evening screening next month.

Film Mobile Scotland Limited again used the same cinema quality digital projector 
and Dolby server and sound system 
on Sunday.
