A town’s famous film-making son has paid a visit to a project to build a new cinema there.
A £2 million project to clear out and remodel the building on Marischal Street in Peterhead into a modern five-screen facility has begun.
Workers were in the building this week when Hollywood director Jon S Baird popped in to have a look at the progress.
Born and raised in Peterhead, Mr Baird – who directed the Bafta award-winning Stan And Ollie and is famous for his adaptation of Filth – said he was excited to see a
cinema complex once again take its place in the town.
Mr Baird said: “My mum and dad’s first date was in the Regal cinema, which was in this building in the 1950s.
“Because of that, this is a very special place for our family.”
