Our 50th Anniversary Programme


We are celebrating our bumper year of anniversaries with a programme of special screenings taking place throughout May. The programme will showcase films that have been hugely popular with audiences and have played a unique role in the history of GFT over the past five decades.

Glasgow’s original independent cinema, we first opened our doors as the Cosmo 85 years ago, on 18 May 1939, and became Glasgow Film Theatre as you know it today, 50 years ago, on 2 May 1974. This year also marks the 20th edition of Glasgow Film Festival, which took place in March 2024.

Support GFT with £50 for 50

Whilst our box office and bar sales only cover around 50% of our annual costs and help keep the film reels rolling, we rely on donations and fundraising to run our education and community activities. We need your help!

Celebrate 50 years of GFT by donating £50 at checkout.  A £50 donation secures your seat at our special January screening, find out more or donate via glasgowfilm.org/donate. Shape the next 50 years of independent film. Your contribution matters.
