Roll out of bed and come for a lazy morning screening in your PJs!
Dapper Koala Buster Moon presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. An eternal optimist, and a bit of a scoundrel, he loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he takes one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition. Five contestants emerge: a mouse, a timid elephant, a pig, a gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine. View the trailer here

Dispossession-The Great Social Housing Swindle (Cert. PG, 82 mins, 2017) / Let Glasgow Flourish (NC- PG advised, 12 mins, 1952/1956)
The Glad Cafe | 4.30pm | £8/£6 | Buy tickets:
For some people, a housing crisis means not getting planning permission for a loft conversion. For others it means, quite simply, losing their home. Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle is a feature documentary directed by Paul Sng (Sleaford Mods – Invisible Britain) and narrated by Maxine Peake, exploring the catastrophic failures that have led to a chronic shortage of social housing in Britain. The film focuses on the neglect, demolition and regeneration of council estates across the UK and investigates how the state works with the private sector to demolish council estates to build on the land they stand on, making properties that are unaffordable to the majority of people. Dispossession is the story of people fighting for their communities, of people who know the difference between a house and a home, and who believe that housing is a human right, not an expensive luxury.

Silent experimental shorts with a live soundtrack by Richard Youngs (60 mins approx., Cert. 15)
The Glad Cafe | 8pm | £10/£8 | Buy tickets:
Emak Bakia (Man Ray, 1926)
Ghosts Before Breakfast (Hans Richter, 1927)
Un Chien Andalou (Luis Buñuel,1929)
Meshes of the Afternoon (Maya Deren and Alexander Hamid, 1943)
A selection of four silent shorts from the experimental margins of early 20th century cinema, featuring key works by some of the most distinctive filmmakers of the Surrealist movement and experimental avant-garde. Ranging from the strange and humorous to the dreamlike and disturbing, these pioneering films remain invigorating in their inventiveness and speak to the possibilities of the medium of cinema some 80 years later.
We are delighted to welcome celebrated musician Richard Youngs to provide a soundtrack to this programme. With a career spanning thirty years and a prolific output, Youngs’ restless creativity has meant never getting stuck in one genre or sound; noise, free improv, psychedelic folk mantras, avant-disco and all manner of song deconstructions have peppered his rich and varied discography, and his fearless and exploratory attitude to music will make for a fittingly unique accompaniment.
The Fog (Cert 15, 86 mins, 1980)
Govanhill Baths| 10pm | £8/£6 | Buy tickets:
Bolt your doors, lock your windows, there’s something in the fog… An ominous, glowing fog envelops the coastal town of Antonio Bay, California, bringing with it the ghosts of seafarers killed in a shipwreck 100 years earlier. But the shipwreck was deliberate, and the ghosts come seeking vengeance on the descendants of those who wronged them. Come and see John Carpenter’s horror classic in the uniquely atmospheric setting of the main pool at Govanhill Baths at night. Watch the trailer here
We advise dressing for the outdoors as Govanhill Baths is an old building and the swimming pool can get very cold, even in June!
