Better known as the GFT, Glasgow’s original independent cinema shows a big variety of films — Hollywood blockbusters, documentaries, international films, old classics and relays from the National Theatre and The Bolshoi Ballet, amongst others. If you want 3D, overpriced food and tickets, stick to the big cinema chains. If you want quality films, old-style cinemas, a cozy bar and reasonably-priced tickets, come here.
The GFT has special seasons throughout the year and is home to the excellent Glasgow Film Festival from 21 February – 4 March. There’s always a superb choice of films and even some freebies at 10:30am on some days. Check the website to find out what’s on. Tickets for some shows on Friday are only £5.50.
