Terms and conditions

Glasgow Film Terms & Conditions

  1. Please note that Glasgow Film Theatre (GFT) and Glasgow Film Festival (GFF) tickets are non-refundable. Refunds will only be made in the event of a performance being cancelled.
  2. At the discretion of the manager, GFT tickets may be exchanged for another performance at the cost of £1.50 per ticket. This exchange must be processed no later than one hour before the start time of the original film. If tickets are not of equal value, the additional cost will also be charged, or, in the case of an exchange from a more expensive ticket to a cheaper one, the outstanding amount will be retained by GFT after the exchange fee has been deducted. GFF tickets can only be exchanged under exceptional circumstances, again at the discretion of the manager and at the additional cost of £1.50 per ticket, for other GFF tickets.
  3. Complimentary ticket vouchers or Cinecard complimentary vouchers are valid for standard-priced GFT performances only (where tickets are available) and cannot be used for Glasgow Film Festival performances, unless otherwise stated.
  4. Tickets can be booked in advance online or over-the-phone (subject to availability). Please note that phone bookings will incur a £1.50 booking fee. There is no additional charge for online booking.
  5. Programme listings may be subject to change. Please visit our website here for the most up-to-date information
  6. Please request any concessions at the time of purchase. Concessions cannot be applied after purchase. Proof of concession status will be requested when purchasing or collecting tickets. Please note that the student discount is applicable for full-time students only.
  7. Entry for any given performance will be permitted up to 15 minutes after the advertised start time. Late entry for ticket-holders is at the discretion of the Duty Manager. Cinema managers reserve the right of admission and their decision is final. Please note that GFF performances are not preceded by adverts and trailers, starting promptly at the stated time. Ticket-holders will not be admitted after the advertised time.
  8. During film screenings, we request patrons refrain from talking or making noises which could distract others and also from using any form of light source which could affect the enjoyment of fellow audience members. The use of mobile phones and e-cigarettes is not permitted in the cinema. This is due to the emission of light from such items which can spoil enjoyment of the film for others.
  9. All seats are unreserved, unless otherwise stated.
  10.  Hot food is not permitted to be consumed within our auditoria.
  11. For licensing and health & safety purposes, we do not permit alcohol purchased outwith GFT to be consumed on the premises. This also extends to GFT/GFF performances taking place at external venues. Where appropriate, bar facilities will be provided at special events for the purchase of alcohol. Please check specific performance listings for information. Please note that bag checks may be carried out by stewards at GFT and GFF events. Alcohol and/or glass bottles will be confiscated and returned to owners at the end of a given performance.
  12. Please note that GFT does not offer any storage facilities for personal or luggage items.
  13. For special event performances taking place outwith Glasgow Film Theatre (and, during Glasgow Film Festival, CCA Sauchiehall Street and Cineworld Renfrew Street), tickets will be available for collection from the GFT Box Office up to two hours prior to doors open time. After which time, tickets can be collected from the venue one hour before doors open time.
