Fairy Tales for Troubled Times

Scarlett Johansson stars Under The Skin - Sep 16

The Shape of Water, September 15

And.. it is that time of year again where we set up the Outdoor Cinema in Trinity Garden and over two weekends you get to enjoy the late summer heat, listen to some great music, enjoy a nice bit of food (if you like) and watch some classic movies as the sun sets.

This year we’ve curated films around the theme of Fairy Tales for Troubled Times, choosing four films that look at the idea of being another in a world that doesn’t accept you.

We kick off with a "rags to riches fairytale set in the phantasmagorical world of Jamaican dancehall" as we team up with Come The Revolution to present Don Letts' first ever feature film Dancehall Queen (Sep 8).

Someone said get a life… so they did. Hailed as one of the greatest road movies of all time, Ridley Scott’s Thelma and Louise (Sep 9) charters the trail and tribulations of two women’s crime spree across the American Southwest.

Set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963 Guilermo Del Toro’s, The Shape of Water (Sat Sep 15)  is an other worldly fairy tale about love and the fear of the unknown.

Scarlett Johansson stars in the indie drama, Under The Skin (Sep 16). Part road movie, part science fiction, part real this is a tale of an alien in human form and is all about looking at our world (or, at least Glasgow) through alien eyes.

Our Outdoor Cinema's start a 7pm, and before the films start (at around 8:00pm, when the sun sets) you can grab yourself a drink at the bar, get some movie theme inspired food, and have a bit of a boogie to some music from 7:30pm.
