The Legend of Barney Thomson screening 7.30pm Sat 28th November


Described as ‘an urban horror’ and ‘deliciously macabre’, The Legend of Barney Thomson tells the story of Barney Thomson – awkward, diffident, Glasgow barber, who lives a life of desperate mediocrity and his uninteresting life is about to go from 0 to 60 in five seconds, as he enters the grotesque and comically absurd world of the serial killer.

Just been to see @LegendofBarney movie Terrific performances by a great cast but the star has to be the story itself by @DTSLindsay

The film, recently BAFTA nominated,  was adapted by Richard Cowan and Colin McLaren from the first in the series of seven Barney Thomson books by Douglas Lindsay. And we are delighted to be be joined by Douglas Lindsay who will be with us to present the film and answer any questions you have.
