A rare opportunity to see Todd Haynes’ third feature on the big screen. Bisexual glam rock star Brian Slade (Jonathan Rhys Myers) predicts his death on stage. Shortly after, he fakes his own death and is exposed as a fraud. A decade later in 1984, reporter and former fan, Arthur Stuart (Christian Bale), is sent out to expose the truth behind the myth and tracks down the former rocker. Arthur interviews the man who discovered Slade, and a peer (Ewan McGregor), to understand Slade’s motivations. Screening on 35mm.  

Followed by a panel discussion 'Glam Idols: Making Bi Mainstream' hosted by the Scottish Bi+ Network and featuring local bi+ activists.
