Description

THE GLEN CINEMA DISASTER (2019) Directed by Paul Mothersole

To mark the 90th anniversary of the Glen Cinema disaster Paul Mothersole has produced a new documentary highlighting the incredible stories and courage of the survivors, and the disaster's impact on the wider world.

Paul Mothersole had previously directed two films about the disaster - The Great Cinema Disaster (2004) and The Legacy of the Glen Cinema (2009). This new documentary features interviews and survivors stories never included in any film before. The film provides a lasting testement to the children who lost their lives, the survivors who bravely told their stories and the local community who kept the legacy alive.

The film forms part of a wider commemorative programme led by Renfrewshire Council that includes the commission of a lasting art work for the town and Lantern Procession from Dunn Square to Paisley Abbey on Saturday 7th December at 5pm.
