Greyfriars Bobby Film (2005)
The Grassmarket Community Project’s award-winning cinema team bring you this special screening, hopefully with actor Greg Wise joining us, who played Rev Robert Lee in the film. Greg will, hopefully, be speaking about his involvement in the film and discussions with the Kirk’s Rev Richard Frazer that helped him prepare for the part. Enjoy this family-friendly Disney film in the beautiful interior of the Kirk, set in the Kirk-yard which was Bobby’s home and where you can still enjoy and commemorate the story by visiting his grave.
Skye Terrier, Bobby makes the Kirk his home on the death of his master, who is buried in the Kirk-yard. Despite the Kirk-yard’s caretaker, Bobby slept each night by his master’s grave and made friends in the local community. But Bobby’s situation becomes desperate (he might be destroyed!) unless someone pays for the dog licence fee required at the time.
What better way to celebrate World Animal Day than enjoy these heart-warming films, highlighting the rewards of friendship with animals.
