cinema paradiso

Monday 6 May, 2024, 3.00 p.m.

highlight of 20th Century European cinema, the Oscar and BAFTA award-winning Cinema Paradiso captures the spirit and communal power of film and has unsurprisingly been embraced by GFT audiences time and time again. It will make a welcome return for a special screening on the Monday 6 May Bank Holiday.

Giuseppe Tornatore’s loving homage to the cinema tells the story of Salvatore, a successful film director, returning home for the funeral of Alfredo, his old friend who was the projectionist at the local cinema throughout his childhood. Soon memories of his first love affair with the beautiful Elena and all the highs and lows that shaped his life come flooding back, as Salvatore reconnects with the community he left 30 years earlier.

Tickets for the anniversary programme of films go on sale at 12pm (noon) on Wednesday 3 April from and the GFT Box Office 0141 332 6535
