TOMORROW – THE FILM. THURS 12 OCT 2017 – THERE IS HOPE & INSPIRATION

We would like to invite you to a FREE screening of the award winning documentary – Tomorrow/Demain.  THURSDAY 12th OCTOBER AT MELDRUM ACADEMY – 6:45 pm

This documentary is a hugely positive, affirming and inspirational film exploring community led creative solutions to the challenges we face in this modern world around food, energy, transport, economics and education.

It has been described as the perfect antidote to the current sense of global despondency and we are really excited to be bringing the film to Oldmeldrum. There will be teas and coffees served after to give people the opportunity to chat about the film and network.

Please spread the word far and wide and let us know if you are coming to help us plan for numbers.

We’d like to thank Meldrum Academy, Councillor Paul Johnston – Democratic Independent – Aberdeenshire Council, AD Heating Ltd and Archer Knight Limited for their support, and hope to see lots of you there!

ELLON CINEMA TO FEATURE A MAJOR OPERA EVENT 17 OCT

A specialnote from the Ellon Cinema team.

Opera CARMEN

Friday, 20th October 2017 at 7:30 pm

The Ellon Cinema team will be reaching out to all fans of classical opera in the area on Friday, the 20th October when they will be hosting a special screening of Carmen captured live at the Teatro Dell’opera Di Roma during their summer season this year.

CARMEN deals with the love and jealousy of naïve soldier Don José who’s lured away from his beloved by the gypsy factory-girl Carmen, whom he allows to escape from custody. Staged by Argentine director Valentina Carrasco, this is a modern interpretation performed in the enchanting setting of the Terme di Caracalla in Rome, the archaeological site of the Roman Baths where a unique theatrical stage comes to life.

Conductor Jesùs López-Cobos
Stage Director Valentina Carrasco
Starring Veronica Simeoni and Roberto Aronica

The arrangements for the night will feature cabaret style layout of tables and seating and the normal refreshment service for the evening will be supplemented by a full bar service provided by local Ellon team ‘Bar Stars’ to allow opera goers on the night to enjoy a favourite drink both before acts 1 & 2 and during the 30 minute break.
