To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Jonathan Glazer’s sensationally dark Under the Skin returns to Glasgow for an exclusive live event, after closing the festival back in 2014.

Shrouded in mystery, Scarlett Johansson is a sleek alien temptress, haunting the streets of a raucous and very real Glasgow. Glazer’s sci-fi parable muses lithely from perspectives of immigration, to loneliness, to the very fabric of humanity, between cinematic rhythms of perfect perplexity.

This screening will be accompanied with a live performance of Mica Levi's score by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jonathan Berman with soundscape by Sound Intermedia. Beautiful and strange, the film score creates an uncomfortable, otherworldly atmosphere, which earned Mica a BAFTA nomination and catapulted them to international fame.

Doors open 16:30.

The venue is wheelchair accessible.

Please note: Under the Skin is rated 15 by the BBFC but this event is certificated 18+ due to alcohol being served in the venue.
