As one of the most anticipated films of the year, 'Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens’ is set to be a blockbuster when it hits screens in December. Glasgow’s Grosvenor Cinema will be marking the release with a bang – by showing it 24 hours a day.
The film (and, we feel moved to emphasise, not the whole series) will be showing at The Grosvenor from Thursday December 17 and to make sure you have a chance to see it – and watch it again and again – the cinema will be hosting a marathon weekend screening from 11am on Friday December 18 until Sunday December 20. During this time, ‘The Force Awakens’ will be shown 24 hours a day.
If that’s not enough, there’s also a one-off midnight showing on Wednesday December 16 and it’ll also be shown on Christmas Day at 7.30pm.
To make sure you have time to eat, they’ll also be offering a two-course Christmas movie meal deal with wine or beer and two cinema tickets at the Grosvenor Café for £25 per person Sunday to Thursday and £35 Fridays and Saturdays.
Neighbouring burger joint Ketchup will also be in on the action and have a package offering a burger, hardshake and film ticket for £17.50.
‘The Force Awakens’ is the first film in the planned third trilogy, set 30 years after Episodes VI and VII and stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford.
