Special Screening 50th Anniversary GFT

Friday, 3 May, 2024, 10.30 p.m.

A key element of our programme since the cinema first opened in 1974, our Late Night screenings have recently relaunched as a regular monthly event. In recent years the programming for the Late Night slot has leaned into cult classics and we’re delighted to bring back one of the most enduringly popular: John Carpenter’s Escape from New York.

In 1997, following a major war between the USA and the Soviet Union, the island of Manhattan has been converted into a giant maximum security prison. When Air Force One is hijacked and the president is taken hostage by a group of inmates, Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell), a former Special Forces soldier turned criminal, is recruited to retrieve the president in exchange for his own freedom.

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
