THE BISHOP’S WIFE  (U, 109mins) WITH CHRISTMAS DINNER |     POLLOK HOUSE, POLLOK PARK | FRIDAY 16 DECEMBER 2016 |     £40 for dinner and movie Buy tickets here


Heavenly bells are ringing, jubilant choirs are singing, and Christmas joy is blanketing the world like freshly fallen snow. But the Yuletide spirit has yet to warm Bishop Henry Brougham’s Victorian home. Struggling to raise funds for a new cathedral, the preoccupied young clergyman has neglected his loving wife, Julia, and now only divine intervention can save their marriage! But the powerful and handsome angel sent from above has a mind of his own..and teaching mortal Henry an immortal lesson in romance isn’t all he has planned!

 A funny wee film about music and death

Cult-pop raconteur Aidan Moffat, best known for his lyrics about sex, drugs and male anxiety, decides to rewrite and perform Scotland’s oldest songs. The only thing standing in his way is a 79-year-old force of nature and travelling balladeer called Sheila Stewart. He believes these songs are ripe for updating. She does not.

Followed by a Q&A with the director, Southsider filmmaker Paul Fegan.
