Following on from the hugely successful outdoor Christmas cinema event, Movies on the Mall, The Playhouse Project is joining forces with FilmMobile once again to bring the public monthly movie screenings.

Around 400 people braved the cold weather at the beginning of December for Movies On the Mall to watch The Muppet Christmas Carol and Elf, which were projected on to the back of Montrose’s former swimming pool on The Mall - the site where the Playhouse Project hopes to build a cinema.

Now, films that are only a month or so out of the cinema will be shown at the monthly events.

David Paton, chairman of Montrose Playhouse Project, said: “We will be screenings of some of the biggest movies we can get our hands on in Montrose Academy’s Assembly Hall.

“The screenings will aimed at fundraising and market research events for the main project.
