Movie bosses have snubbed Edinburgh for the premiere of Sunshine on Leith, instead choosing to roll out the red carpet 3000 miles away in Canada.
The cinematic adaptation of the hit musical will be unveiled for the first time at the famous Toronto Film Festival on September 9.
Twins Charlie and Craig Reid, otherwise known as the Proclaimers, said they were thrilled to be going global.
The film is tipped to be Scotland's answer to Mamma Mia and is expected to bring more tourists to the city, but one Leith councillor has branded the snub a slap in the face for locals.
Councillor Gordon Munro said: "I didn't know The Proclaimers had emigrated.
"I would have thought the premiere would be here in Leith and they would have done it for the community, given what it's about.
"The obvious thing for me, was to have some sort of premiere at Ocean Terminal and have the red carpet out. It could have had some sort of screening at Easter Road. It makes you think the whole thing was just done for a film festival."
The film tells of two soldiers returning to Edinburgh after serving in Afghanistan.
It was produced by award-winning filmmaker Andrew Macdonald, who worked on Shallow Grave and Trainspotting. It stars veteran Glasgow actor Peter Mullan, Little Voice star Jane Horrocks and Paul Brannigan, who shot to fame in The Angel's Share last year.
The Reid twins, who have a scene-stealing appearance in their former neighbourhood, confirmed they would attend the premiere.
An Edinburgh premiere is expected later in September before the film is released across the UK on October 4.
Most scenes were filmed in Glasgow to keep costs down.
