Lost Cinemas of Glasgow: Architecture and Society
The Glad Cafe
Tue 29 Sept – Mon 26 Oct
Subject to opening hours

This exhibition of Southside cinema buildings offers a unique insight into how cinemas once played an influential role in everyday Glaswegians’ lives. The fates of Glasgows 160 former cinema buildings range from demolition and dereliction to transformation; today functioning at times in new social roles, yet holding memories of a forgotten past. This exhibition is a special Southside selection of historical cinemas which serves as a poignant reminder of the absence of a cinema building in Glasgow’s Southside.

Photography exhibition Crime-scene-photo credit alan-taylor

An exhibition of imaginary film scenes set in various Southside locations that will be displayed in the windows of local independent businesses. The exhibition is a collaborative project between the Contemporary Photography Group of Queen’s Park Camera Club and the students at Shawlands Academy, and was set-up especially for this year’s Southside Film Festival. We will soon post a map of the exhibition locations.

Thanks to Queen’s Park Camera Club and Shawlands Academy.QPCC_MAP_Final
