Help us provide Cinema For All

GFT has re-opened after five months of closure due to the global health emergency. During that time we had no income from tickets or bar sales, and reduced capacity to ensure social distancing in the cinema will mean our income is impacted for the forseeable future.

You may know that GFT is a not-for-profit educational charity which provides a variety of free or subsidised screenings, regular screenings for people living with dementia or autism, as well as being the original arthouse cinema in Scotland and the home of film in Glasgow. Our programme includes the best new independent films from around the world, plus classics and special seasons.  

During the time GFT was closed, our work to provide Cinema For All continued. We worked hard behind the scenes, from our homes, to connect our film-loving audience with lots of ways to enjoy film culture during this most difficult of times. 

Films have the power to educate and inform, to entertain and inspire. There has never been a more important time to connect with others and experience other lives, through stories, fictional and real.

Our audience is the most important part of the GFT family, so welcoming you all back to watch films on the big screen has been wonderful. We really appreciate everyone buying tickets and coming to see films at GFT.

You can also support us by buying a CineCard for yourself or someone else, purchasing Gift Vouchers, or by making a donation. Below, you’ll find a breakdown of the many ways your donations can help other people enjoy the magic of cinema. 

Thank you to all of the people who have already done so. Your support and generosity is truly appreciated. We know how much you love GFT and its importance to the city, and that makes us even more determined to be there for you and provide those incredible film experiences now we have re-opened.
