Glasgow Film Theatre

The Glasgow Film Theatre predecessor was The Cosmo. This  was the first Arts cinema and the only second purpose-built Arthouse in Britain, after the Curzon Mayfair London. Opened in 18 May 1939 it was the last cinema to be built in Glasgow before WWII. There was globe in the original built over the Stalls, which  Architect Brian McGinlay of McGinlay & Bell incorporated in the floor using brass and terrazzo to a fantastic effect, giving the GFT a feel of Grandeur synonymous with this era. Adding the terrazzo stairs which the original had brought it all together. A great advert for both insitu Terrazzo and Precast stair tread and risers units.
