An Aberdeen Journals Archive photograph of two baby elephants, from the Robert Brothers Circus, attending a matinee screening of The Tales of Beatrix Potter at the ABC Cinema in Union Street on Wednesday 28th July 1971. This was a promotional stunt for the cinema and circus that was performing at the Queen's Links from 26th July to 7th August.

The two elephants were called Maureen and Catzeila and were accompanied by staff from the circus. The Tales of Beatrix Potter was a ballet film directed by Reginald Mills based on the children's stories of English author and illustrator Beatrix Potter. The elephants sat in the front row for the screening of the film.
