Twisted Toons Sun 13th Nov @ 3pm
Don't miss your chance to catch Twisted Toons exclusively at the Cinema Museum!
Glasgow-based drummer and composer, Stu Brown, released his critically acclaimed debut album The Stu Brown Sextet, Twisted Toons – The Music of Raymond Scott in 2009, a tribute to the maverick bandleader, composer, inventor and electronic music pioneer.
Get ready to delve even deeper into the world of the cartoon soundtracks Twisted Toons Vol. 2!. Including the pioneering work of Carl Stalling, whose brilliantly detailed scores accompanied the antics of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and co., as well as the equally groundbreaking music of Scott Bradley, which underscored the slapstick violence of Tom and Jerry and the Tex Avery cartoons. Most of this music has never been recorded or performed live since the original cartoons were made.

Remakesploitation screening Mon 28th Nov @ 7pm

To get the Remakesploitation film club's launch off to a flying start, we have decided to hold a screening of Cem Kaya’s thoughtful and hilarious documentary Remake, Remix, Rip-Off (2014), that tells the bizarre history of Turkish exploitation cinema.

Throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, Turkish filmmakers were taking advantage of lax copyright laws in order to remake hundreds of popular Hollywood films. Directors such as Metin Erksan and Çetin İnanç were producing low budget Turkish remakes of The ExorcistE.T.RamboSuperman, and even Star Wars! Cem Kaya’s documentary charts this little known period of film history with some truly incredible interviews and clips, highlighting the passion and dynamism that went into producing these remakes, and giving a genuine insight into this overlooked era of exploitation film production.

The Vito Project presents Heavenly Creatures Wed 30th Nov @ 7:30pm
The VITO Project is delighted to present a free screening of the 1994 New Zealand psychological thriller, Heavenly Creatures.

Directed by Peter Jackson, from a screenplay he co-wrote with his partner, Fran Walsh, the film is based on the true story of an obsessive relationship between two teenage girls in 1950s Christchurch.  The lavishly-filmed hypnotic escapade recounts the friendship of outsider Pauline (Melanie Lynskey) with the beautiful Juliet (Kate Winslet). Sharing a passion for literature and art, the two quickly develop an uncomfortably intense relationship, bonded together by a shared fantasy land that they will go to any lengths, no matter how repellent, to conserve.
The screening will be followed by an open discussion with Helen Oakleigh, performer, writer and film maker, and Pamela Johnson, retired teacher and ardent cinephile.
