I've heard it so often recently - I wish there was a small cinema or regular film nights in the Southside. With the G1 groups plans to renovate the old white elephant building stalling, where are we Southsiders suppose to go to watch a good film?
I personally really enjoyed the Tramway's involvement in the film festival, being able to watch a film in the Southside was great and the Pollokshaws Burgh Halls silent films, to organ music, are also rather unique events.
So I am really pleased to see that the Tramway are showing another couple of films next week. On Wednesday 7 April, Peter Brook introduces his 1979 ﬁlm Meetings with Remarkable Men. which explores the early life of G.I. Gurdjieff who discovered new levels of understanding in his travels though Central Asia.
Thursday night brings Peter Brook’s faithful adaptation of William Golding’s classic novel Lord of the Flies follows the fate of a group of schoolboys stranded on an island after a plane crash. Brook creates an intense realism through which we witness the battle between civility and savagery, ultimately leading to a bitter and bloody climax. Both films start at 7.30 pm £4/£3
There is also a community film night being established in Govanhill, the second film, Urban Roots film & Farm for the Future, is being held tomorrow night at St Brides Primary [7-9pm]. This event is being organised by local residents. If you would like to organise, or otherwise help with a film night, then go along and share your ideas.
