Join us for a unique cinematic and culinary experience in the beautiful surroundings of Pollok House, one of Scotland’s grandest Edwardian country houses.

Southside Film Festival, in partnership with National Trust Scotland, are delighted to present Gosford Park a 1930’s ‘whodunit’ starring Stephen Fry, Maggie Smith and Glasgow’s own Kelly MacDonald. We follow the upstairs guests and their downstairs servants at a country house weekend shooting party where a series of illicit trysts and dodgy business deals culminate in murder. Scandalous secrets and gossip will keep you guessing to the end as everyone is a suspect in this Academy Award winning film.

From 5.30pm onwards enjoy a pre film drink in the opulence of the Pavilion Library overlooking the gardens of the house, you will then be led through to the Dining Room for the screening at 6.15pm surrounded by the artwork and portraits of the Maxwell family. After the credits roll follow the double sweeping staircase downstairs to the servants’ quarters for a two course meal and glass of wine in the kitchen restaurant.
