Hello there,

I'm Mr Cosmo, the cinema's mascot since the building opened in 1939, although I'm older than that! I first appeared in the Glasgow University Magazine in the 20s. Charles Oakley (a Glasgow personality, involved with GFT's predecessor, The Cosmo, for over 30 years) designed me based on dapper bowler-hatted George Singleton and I've appeared on hundreds of leaflets and newspaper adverts over the years. 

You can spot me around the GFT - in the roof of Cinema 1, you can see a lighting feature based on my bowler hat!

Good day, a tip of the hat to you and I do hope I'll see you in the cinema soon. 


Mr Cosmo
