Brechin Community Cinema had a sell-out audience for its screening of Sunset Song on January 17.

The movie was the third screening that day, on what proved to be a busy one for the


The Good Dinosaur was the first film shown, and recorded a good audience size, while Star Wars proved even more popular.

However, it was the film adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s work that led to the cinema’s first full house.

Chair of the group, Graham Donald, said: “For the evening film, we must apologies to the 30 or so who could not get in due to the full house signs being put up for the first time.

‘‘Isabella Williamson, from the Lewis Grassic Gibbon Centre, gave a brief introduction to the centre, the man and his work prior to its screening.

“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our audience members who supported our own first aiders in assisting with the audience members who became unwell during Sunset Song.”

Similar to previous movie screenings, the Brechin Community Cinema group made sure to add a little extra to the proceedings.

Graham added: “We were able to secure the services of a Storm Trooper, a Tuscan Raider and Princess Leia with whom our audience could get their picture taken in return for a small donation which, along with a contribution from the cinema, brought in over £100 for CHAS.”
