Glasgow Film Theatre - Completion Project

In 2011, The Glasgow Film Theatre embarked on its phased journey to deliver a masterplan vision for a significant refurbishment to the much-loved category b-listed building and former 1930’s James McKissack’s cinema building. Key to the first phase alteration works, complete in late 2013, was the introduction of a new entrance box office facility and a careful insertion of a new sixty seat digital auditorium space. The second phase, what we call the completion project, focuses on the transformation and re-interpretation of all the internal spaces out-with the three principle auditoriums and finally constructs the phased masterplan vision set by the GFT in 2011. The major alterations are carried out to both the public and private areas throughout the cinema building. The refurbishment inserts a suite of new contemporary interiors detailed and enriched by a carefully selected material palatte.
