MPA spreads festive joy to local pupils and extends support for community cinema experience
In the spirit of giving this holiday season, Montrose Port Authority is bringing festive joy to 1,141 pupils across the six local Montrose primary schools with a special cinema outing to the Montrose Playhouse, providing students with an opportunity to watch a Christmas film on the big screen.
This thoughtful gesture from the Port Authority aims to not only spread festive cheer but to also create lasting memories for Montrose primary school students, reflecting the Port’s ongoing commitment to giving back to the community.
“I remember being treated to one of my earliest cinema outings on a school trip as a child and what a lasting experience that had on me. It’s wonderful to be able to give that same joy to the children of Montrose,” said Lynn Sayer, Business & Commercial Manager at Montrose Port.
The trust port is not only covering the cost of the cinema tickets but also ensuring that every child receives a complimentary drink and snack to complete the cinematic treat.
Matthew Buchanan, Venue Manager at the Montrose Playhouse commented: “Sponsoring all the primary school students to come to the cinema is incredible. For some kids, this will be their first cinema experience, hopefully igniting their love for cinema and creating a lasting memory they’ll never forget.”
The Montrose Playhouse opened to the public at the start of October 2021 after a three-year fundraising and construction project that transformed the old town swimming pool into a fantastic cinema and community arts hub, spear-headed by a group of local volunteers.
Montrose Port Authority takes pride in supporting local causes and initiatives, such as the Playhouse, that enhance community well-being for residents in Montrose and its surrounding areas.
Already the Box Office Sponsor of the Montrose Playhouse and in addition to this festive school treat, Montrose Port Authority has extended its sponsorship at the Playhouse, where it is now the sponsor of all community screenings.
These screenings cater to various groups, including new parents, those with dementia, individuals with sensory difficulties or learning impairments, those who are deaf or hard of hearing, individuals over 60, and those from low-income households.
“This sponsorship allows us to reach so many more people in the community, so we are grateful to the Montrose Port team for all the support they have shown us,” added Matthew Buchanan.
