Revealed: Glasgow Film Festival to showcase Aliaen and Matrix in 2019 schedule

The 2019 event will showcase some of the finest big screen offerings from Belgium and Hollywood as well as special celebration screenings of two classic blockbusters.

Film fans are invited to adventure underneath Glasgow Central Station and attend the first official 20th Anniversary screening of The Matrix in the subterranean caverns of Argyle Street Arches.

The event will feature “mind-twisting immersive installations” and an after-party with audiences encouraged to don black sunglasses and dark leather as they explore the deconstructed world of the ground-breaking film.

While in a north Glasgow warehouse, fans have been warned no-one will hear you scream as audiences brave an encounter with the Xenomorph itself at a large-scale pop-up event showing of Alien -featuring laser-tag adventures, comic books and themed cocktails.

Allison Gardner, festival co-director, said: “For GFF19 the team have pulled together a brilliant series of events and both The Matrix and Alien will be the pop-up events of the year.

“As ever it’s our audiences who add the fun and frivolities to our immersive events and they have never let us down and always exceed our expectations and ensure the events are fun. There are more events to be revealed and we are looking forward to sharing these on January 23”.
