Friday, 20th October – Opera Night
Ellon Cinema volunteers will be running a very special night on Friday (see below) as this will be their first Opera event and are hoping that it will prove popular. They are planning to offer a seating at table option and a licenced bar for both pre and half time refreshment. Online bookings are already coming in and they will be offering the usual pay at the door option for those who make up their minds last minute.
If successful, Ellon Cinema will be looking at putting more from the All Opera 17/18 series (which includes a ballet) during 2018.
