Audiences are marvelling at the restored Campbeltown Picture House (CPH) officially re-opened last Friday after its £3.5m refit.

CPH’s most loyal customer, Gordon Wilson, who has attended most films since about 1973. cut a tape spliced with a length of movie celluloid on Friday morning to declare the cinema open for business.

Argyll and Bute MP Brendan O’Hara, a former television producer, visited the cinema at lunchtime last Friday and was filmed by a documentary crew making a movie about the restoration.
