Neds - On Ticket Trout Tuesday

Tue 5 April 2011 // 20:00

(Tue 5th / 8pm / £3/2 for fishy fashions)

"From the depths smooth-skinned as plums" ... The March hare has been hopping about on his crazed little toes, The April fool has warmed up his nonsense so we thought we'd amuse ourselves by taking a pun too far, jazzing up our regular Ticket Tout Tuesday into Ticket Trout Tuesday.

"There's no taking trout with dry breeches"

We're celebrating our fishy friends by starting the night with a short live performance from The Cardboard Chorus Line before the film, fishy tunes and a special offer. Bring a fish puppet, model or hat and you'll get a pound off the already discounted Tuesday price. Come dressed a fish and we'll probably propose.

"There are many cures for a broken heart, but nothing quite like a trout's leap in the moonlight."

(Peter Mullan / 2011 / UK / 123 minutes / Certificate 18)

Desperate to avoid the spiral of despair that shapes his family, bright lad John McGill is determined to do well. Yet with no small opinion of himself, and the continued class pressures he faces, it’s not long before John craves a kind of respect not offered him as a bookish school prize winner.

With its magical realist touches, Peter Mullan’s dynamic delinquent drama is more Andrea Arnold than Alan Clarke, but it still packs a visceral punch. Its 1970s Glasgow setting is beautifully and painstakingly observed and realised, and it’s packed with outstanding performances from its young cast.
