The Belmont Cinema has held ‘you’ve been trumped’ over for two more weeks due to popular demand writes Voice’s Suzanne Kelly.
Three more screenings have been scheduled over the coming weekend to cater for the sustained public interest in the film.
I attended it again last Sunday; Director Anthony Baxter was present and held another Q&A session after the film. This session overran with many people staying behind in the bar to discuss the issues with him.
Long-term Menie resident Susan Munro was also present, and answered several questions. Since filming, Ms Munro’s garden and car have been affected by a huge mound of sand which the construction engineers left very close to her property.
This will be the second consecutive weekend that the Belmont Picturehouse has added screenings of ‘You’ve Been Trumped’ to their schedule since it’s City premiere on June 17. Such has been the demand.
Belmont Cinema Assistant Manager Kenny says:
“We do screen quite a few documentaries, but interest for this film has been overwhelming. We are very happy to have been able to add more screenings.”
In the current issue of Aberdeen Voice, you can read my review of Anthony Baxter’s award winning film.
Since writing this review, major newspapers The Guardian and The Daily Mail have expressed interest in the Trump development. They report Donald Trump has expressed concerns that ‘the world has changed’ since he bought land at Menie and has asked ‘where’s the market?’
The additional screenings will be held
Friday 1 July, 6.30pm
Saturday 2 July, 1.45pm
Sunday 3 July, 6.30pm
