Subway passengers to enjoy Glasgow Film Festival for less

Glasgow Film Festival offer

Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) and the Glasgow Film Festival (GFF) have joined forces to offer Subway passengers discounted tickets throughout the fantastic ten-day line up.

By showing a valid Subway ticket in person at the box office on the day, passengers will receive £1 off all standard-price tickets – subject to terms and conditions.

The programme boasts 368 screenings, panel discussions, live performances and special events.

SPT Chair George Redmond said:

“We’re thrilled to be part of such a dynamic cultural event. The Subway is one of the quickest ways to get to many of the diverse film venues. With five more days to go, it’s worth having a look at what’s on and subway customers can save money too.”

The Festival is taking place in 27 venues across the city, and St. Enoch subway station played host with its very own screening.

Cult classic The Warriors was shown after hours in the station to 50 lucky ticket holders, with the exclusive event selling out before the film was even announced.

Festival Co-Director Allison Gardner said:

“As the Festival audience grows year on year, we want to keep on offering a broader and broader range of experiences to them. I’m delighted GFF and SPT were able to collaborate on this special event, the first film screening in the Subway’s 116 year history”

Strands within the Festival include a James Cagney retrospective, a showcase of new Brazilian cinema, and Glasgow Music and Film Festival, a range of gigs and live events. Stars expected to attend GFF this year include actors Gemma Arterton, Eli Roth and Saoirse Ronan, and cult director Joss Whedon.

Glasgow Film Festival runs until 24 February at venues across Glasgow city centre. Tickets available at www.glasgowfilm.org/festival
