Sound and Vision Drive-In Programme

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.

Sound and Vision Drive-In brings together two of Glasgow's best-loved festivals in a unique collaboration and celebration of music and film. Glasgow Film Festival (GFF) and Electric Frog, in partnership with MUBI, the curated online cinema.

Stop Making Sense 

Considered the king of concert films, Jonathan Demme’s celebrated film captures Talking Heads at the top of their game. Recorded during their 1983 tour the band takes centre stage, joined by guest musicians for a true cinematic performance with choreography and visuals to match. Decades after the band disbanded in 1991 the film lets generations of new fans discover a band who were anything but ordinary and experience what it was like to be there in the front row dancing like a lunatic.

Studio 54

Manhattan’s Studio 54 was the epicentre of ‘70s hedonism - a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolise an entire era. Its co-owners, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society. Now, 43 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club’s hallowed threshold, this documentary places you inside the famed walls, and tells the fascinating true story behind the greatest club of all time.

Beats Rhymes and Life: Travels of a Tribe called Quest

One of the most influential and groundbreaking groups in hip-hop history, Queens NY collective A Tribe Called Quest are regarded as iconic pioneers of alternative rap, with five gold and platinum selling albums.

Amazing Grace

In 1972, undisputed Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, brought producer Jerry Wexler, her backup singers and the legendary Atlantic Records rhythm section to The New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, to record an album of gospel music before an enthusiastic live audience. The resulting album went on to become one of the biggest albums and most beloved works of her career. But, few realized that those inspirational sessions had not only been recorded they had been filmed by a camera crew led by Oscar-winning filmmaker Sydney Pollack. Due to technical problems the film was never seen until 2019.

No one who loves music will want to miss this thrilling film, which is both an extraordinary look at a key moment in American musical and social history, and an invaluable record of one of America’s greatest artists doing what she did best.
