Our first date was at the ‘pictures’ on 19 September 1965 to see Lucky Jim. We must have hit it off because we will be celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary at Easter.George Whitelock (La Scala, 1965)
I remember aged 10, my mother going to take me to see Star Wars in 1977 , stupidly she allowed my 3 year old sister to come along too .. my sister spent the entire movie either crying, or asking "who is he" .... or going to the toilet ..
When you stop and think there are lots. One of mine was seeing myself on the big screen. A film was made to promote Cumbernauld and part of it was in the library.
My Gran taking me to see Planet of the Apes
Our first date was Jazz on a Summer's Day on 9 July 1960. Unforgettable. Fifty two years later we still go to the GFT, but the Cosmo sounds better!
My father was deaf and therefore preferred foreign films with subtitles. When I was very young, still only a wee girl in fact, I used to accompany him.
The Angels’ Share – It was a gathering of Argyll and Bute psychologists who meet the needs of the area’s neediest children.
The brief period of unemployment where I was able to go to the cinema during the day.
My fondest memories of the GFT in particular are of a pre-film speaker at a screening of The Wicker Man...
Going to see Wizard of Oz with five year old friend, Jean, and her mum in 1953. Loved it! Hooked on cinema ever since!
I went to see Saving Private Ryan at the Odeon Glasgow when it was released. It was mobbed and the only seats were second row. That numbing experience of the opening sequences of the landings had an incredible impact.
