Capturing the Energy in conjunction with ExproGroup hosted a film night at the Tivoli Theatre, as part of Offshore Europe 2015.
Rare films from the 1930s and 1950s - including what is believed to be the earliest surviving professional colour film made in Scotland - were screened at the third Capturing the Energy film night held at the Tivoli Theatre.
Clips from a selection of films from the Scottish Screen Archive were shown at the event, which was attended by representatives from across the industry. The films were introduced by ExproGroup CEO Charles Woodburn.
By showing the Aberdeen before the discovery of ‘black gold’ alongside films from the 1970s as the industry established itself in Scotland, the films reinforce the importance of Capturing the Energy’s work by showing the significant impact the oil and gas industry has had on the economy, infrastructure and communities across Scotland but particularly in Aberdeen. This is the third film night held to promote the project’s work, following on from successful events in 2010 and 2014.
