Another incredible weekend of BVS movies

Friday saw a loyal band of regulars celebrating thirty years since the making of Local Hero. A very chilled out evening of cinematic glory from the quietly briiliant Bill Forsyth.

Next a well attended matinee of the animated movie Epic with all children and adults very well behaved.

Paul Laverty and Walid SalhabThe finale of the weekend came on Saturday night with 140 people in St Joseph’s to watch the fantastic The Angels’ Share and the amazing time lapse film Kinetic Scotland: The East. In an astonishing coup de theatre for our wee cinema  the ingenuous maker of Kinetic East Walid Salhab  graciously agreed to attend the screening. Further, the  superb Paul Laverty who has written more than a dozen movies  with Ken Loach and several other distinguished directors (including Iciar Bollain) was present to introduce The Angels’ Share and generously agreed to stay for a question and answer session after the movies.

All this combined with sponsorship from Glengoyne Distillery and home made tablet made for a truly special night at the pictures.
