A short film by Doug Rocks MacQueen featuring an interview with Lydia Honeybone from Glasgow Artists’ Moving Image Studios (GAMIS).
Lydia gives us a brief history of Govanhill Picture House, and talks in detail about GAMIS’s dreams of bringing cinema back to this important building and the work they are doing to build support for the project – including a new outdoor cinema space – The Batson Street Laboratory (Bat. Lab.).
GAMIS is a charitable organisation founded in 2020 in order to establish dedicated screening facilities, workspace and developmental support for filmmakers and artists working in time-based media. We currently have plans to regenerate the historic Govanhill Picture House into an arts and community hub. Our goal is to bring specialist arts practices and community film programming together under one roof through the provision of a safe and accessible cinema and events space for all.
