Cinema City - new exhibition, Lighthouse, 9 - 20 June

Postby nodrog » Fri May 27, 2005 11:34 am

During Hollywood’s golden era, Glasgow was home to over 130 cinemas – more than any other city outside America. They could accommodate anything from 400 to 4,000 film fans and their design boasted influences from Art Deco to European Modernism. This exhibition celebrates Glasgow’s historic reputation as Cinema City and explores the internal and external architecture of its city centre ‘Picture Palaces’ from both yesteryear and today.

9 June - 20 June 2005

Nope, nothing to do with me I'm afraid - though the nice chap organising it has been in touch with me about it.

The website for the booklet this exhibition is based on can be found here:

Having been along this Sunday, the cinema tour has the official Nodrog Cinema Seal of Approval.

If you're planning on going next Sunday, don't pay your £3 to get into the lighthouse to see the actual exhibition first like I did; they offer to let you in for free for a look after the tour!
