Wednesday 7 September, 2022, 8.35 p.m.

John Byrne’s beloved The Slab Boys is one of the great, joyous landmarks of Scottish theatre. 25 years on since Byrne directed the exuberant cinema adaptation, we’re bringing it back to the big screen for this one-off special screening. Paisley 1957 is the setting, and three working-class lads from the local carpet factory are looking forward to a staff dance and the rock’n’roll fuelled promise of sweet escape from the daily drudgery of their lives. The cast includes Barbara Rafferty, David O’Hara and Ford Kiernan.
