Glasgow Film Festival and Electric Frog Announce Music and Movie Drive-In

Sound & Vision Drive-In Events Cancelled

Sadly, due to the changed regulations affecting drive-in events in Scotland, we have taken the decision to cancel our events.

The updated regulations, which were changed last week, mean it is now not financially viable for us – two small, independent organisations, including a not-for-profit organisation and charity – to put on the events, due to the reduced capacity in the venue this would allow.

We are sorry to disappoint those who were planning to attend, but we understand the regulations are there to keep everyone safe in a situation which is ever-changing.

Purchased tickets will be refunded to the card used in the transactions.

Two of Glasgow's best loved festivals are joining forces to create a special movie and music drive-in taking place next month. Sound & Vision Drive-In is a unique collaboration between Scotland's creative electronic music and film festivals: Glasgow Film Festival (GFF) and Electric Frog.

Due to take place in July at the Riverside Museum, the drive-in will host a series of events which will include iconic music movies, lesser-known GFF gems, live performances, DJ performances and also one or two classics from Glasgow Film Theatre, the home of Glasgow Film Festival. 

On-site food will be provided courtesy of the multi award-winning Big Feed. This event will be carried out in accordance with the government guidelines regarding distancing and safety.

Information on dates, film titles and how to buy tickets will be released in the next few weeks.

Allison Gardner, Glasgow Film CEO and Co-Director of Glasgow Film Festival, said: “We know lots of people have been missing watching films on the big screen while Glasgow Film Theatre, like all cinemas across the country, has remained closed during the health emergency. We are working hard to be ready to welcome everyone back when the restrictions are lifted and, meantime, this special collaboration between our brilliant film festival, GFF, and Electric Frog will give film-fans a taste of the movie magic they have been missing.

“Details of the film selection for Sound & Vision Drive-In will be released soon and will cover a variety of genres; like Glasgow Film Festival’s programme, there will be something for everyone.”

All Monday to Friday shows before 5pm have capacity capped at 50% (unless otherwise stated). All other screenings have full unlimited seating capacity (unless otherwise stated).
