The Donald vs. the Scots in documentary ‘You’ve Been Trumped’ at Proctors

“You’ve Been Trumped,” an award-winning documentary about a group of Scottish residents who take on real estate mogul Donald Trump when he tries to build on their land, has its second U.S. theatrical showing at Proctors in Schenectady on Friday and Saturday, and the film’s producer, Richard Phinney, will be on hand to introduce both night’s 7:30 p.m. screenings and hold Q&As afterward.

The full schedule of showings is: 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Friday; and 3:30, 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

Scotland is the fabled homeland of modern golf and has more courses per capita than any other country, but that didn’t stop Trump from trying to build two more, as well as a 450-room hotel and 1,500 luxury homes. But the land he chose was one of Scotland’s last remaining wilderness areas, a stretch of coastland that locals didn’t want destroyed.

Tickets to the screenings are $5. For more information, call 346-6204 or visit http://www.proctors.org.
