Cur­tain up on ro­man­tic com­edy set in Glas­gow pic­ture palace

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

THE PLAY Movie Time is tour­ing Mull, Muck, Lu­ing, Ap­pin and Su­nart this month.

The show is de­scribed as a bit­ter­sweet, light ro­man­tic com­edy of love and loss set in the pro­jec­tion booth of a Glas­gow pic­ture palace dur­ing the Sec­ond World War. The ac­tion takes place in the pro­jec­tion room of the Roxy Cinema in early 1942.

Alan MacKen­zie plays Wil­lie, a mid­dle class lad from a good back­ground who is chief pro­jec­tion­ist and some­how still hasn’t had his call up papers. Young Mar­garet, or ‘ Mog’, played by Shona Brodie Hill, is sent in to shadow him, just in case. ‘ He is quiet and unas­sum­ing, very buttoned up; she is brash and forth­right and just loves a good time at the danc­ing,’ ex­plained Mull’s arts or­gan­i­sa­tion Co­mar: ‘ She an­noys him like crazy, but to her he is just so bor­ing. So dif­fer­ent in al­most ev­ery way, it’s in their dreams that they re­ally con­nect. They live for, and through, the films they show. But can their lives live up to their dreams?’

Movie Time was first pro­duced at Mull Lit­tle The­atre in 1986 and now re­turns to Mull The­atre, Druimfin, near Tober­mory, on Au­gust 12, 15, 25 and 26, as well as tour­ing Bunes­san Hall on Au­gust 16, Ari­saig on Au­gust 17, Muck Hall on Au­gust 18, Lu­ing on Au­gust 22, Ap­pin on Au­gust 23 and the Su­nart Cen­tre on Au­gust 25. In­for­ma­tion and tick­ets are avail­able from the Co­mar web­site.
