GFT is situated in the heart of Glasgow, just a stone’s throw from bustling Sauchiehall Street and The Glasgow School of Art. We have three raked theatre-style auditoria and a meeting room, all of which are available for private hire for a number of different purposes. On occasion, the GFT bar areas can also be available for hire, please enquire via the e-mail below. We can host corporate events, product launches, private screenings, cast and crew screenings, conferences, gaming parties, meetings and briefings.

If you hire a space, why not take advantage of our state-of-the-art facilities? GFT is equipped with cutting-edge audio visual digital and 35mm/70mm film projection, with PowerPoint and Skype capabilites. We offer technical assistance with all hires and have a full range of microphones at your disposal. Full wifi is available throughout the building.

We have a range of excellent wines, beers and soft drinks as well as Cream of Galloway ice-cream available to take into the cinema as part of our hospitality services.
