The GFT is fantastic. Unfortunately we don't get out to the cinema very often now (small child!) and I really miss our trips to the GFT. The main cinema is fantastic. I love the whole atmosphere of the place. More than just a cinema.

Great film theatre, lovely café/bar and mostly friendly staff. Nice to feel like a grown up at the cinema occasionally.

Been to GFT twice in the last week, our favourite cinema in Glasgow. A cinema for people who like to watch the film without being surrounded by buckets of popcorn, nachos, etc. Staff are very friendly and the film choice is excellent.

This is one of my favourite film theatres. Went recently just after Christmas to see Cinema Paradiso, even although I have said film on DVD ! Like the new look with the box office at the front. Still great staff, and comfortable seating. Lost a star because whereas it was the only cinema theatre where clients tended not to eat... More

Christmas trip to see "It's a wonderful life." Was very enjoyable. Not many cinemas feature this type of movie and it was the first time I'd viewed it on the big screen. Not a dry eye in the house.

I read the last review and don't understand how the GFT can get a bad review from anyone. Obviously I am biased, I was taken here some 30+ years ago by my school and have been a regular visitor since. I have seen some bad films in my time but in the main it has been a pleasure. Is the... More

It's A Wonderful Life? More like an afternoon showing of torture. As my nine year old son put it, "You'd never get behaviour or language like that in the Showcase!" I couldn't agree more, GFT should be ashamed, a fun family afternoon was ruined be exceptionally drunk and inappropriate patrons who threatened to 'rag doll' each other (putting it politely)....

I've been visiting the GFT since the 60's, it was the Cosmo back then. They have films of a more minority interest in a really nice cinema setting. In fact as we speak they're adding a third cinema. What I like about the GFT is that you can enjoy a film without the usual cinema patrons munching into hamburgers and... More

We have been going to Glasgow Film Theatre since it was the Cosmo and love it's Art Deco feel and interesting choice of films. Now there are National Theatre productions that we couldn't possible get to see otherwise. We are looking forward to the new Cinema 3 opening. Congratulations to the volunteer staff - keen film fans- who help to... More

Ive been here so many times and it impresses me and those that I go with every time. Went for the Zombie fest last year and had a Q&A session with the leading actors for both movies. It was such a nice touch to a brilliant evening. Staff are always very friendly...prices are the best in town, you get the... More
