Gordon Barr and Gary Painter
Wednesday 7 June 2017 - 7pm - 54 Bell Street,
Scotland has some of the most architecturally diverse cinema
buildings of anywhere in the world. This double-act led talk will
cover the full range of Glasgow's cinema history, from converted
roller-skating rinks, via the earliest purpose built halls, the
peculiarly Scottish 'back-court' theatres, to the finest thirties
art deco super-cinemas, stopping off to highlight some of the most
interesting depictions of Glasgow on screen, both as itself and
pretending to be other cities along the way.
Gordon Barr and Gary Painter of the Scottish Cinemas and
Theatres Project have been recording and researching Scotland's
palaces of entertainment for over fifteen years.
