The Glasgow Film Theatre is a treasure showing films that are outwith the experiences you will see at your corporate Odeon. Like others we went to see Wonderful Life but have seen other films there that have provided a similar enjoyable and entertaining experience. Fantastic...More

The GFT used to be a Glasgow icon, very stylish. It took you back to a time cinemas themselves were an aesthetic experience and not the hideous multiscreen soulless tack they are now. It still has a great choice of movies - European, art movies,...More

Thanks very much for this considered review. We're delighted that you're a fan of our film selection and atmosphere, even if you're not so keen on the building redevelopments!

A great place to visit if you want to see Indy and mainstream films. Good atmosphere and an excellent range of films. Seating could be better in some of the cinemas. Would recommend.

Usually go here every December to see It's a Wonderful Life. It's a great atmosphere and everyone claps at the end. The location is great to get to, only 2 cinema screens at the location. Will be back again this year.

Hi Bella, glad you like our film selection. As an old cinema we are aware of the need to upgrade some areas, and the seating in screens 1 and 2 is one of those areas. We've just completed phase 2 of an extensive redevelopment, focusing...More
