A CHRISTIAN FILM THE SHACK (12A) is being retained for a second week at Glasgow’s Silverburn Cineworld from this Friday 16th June until Wednesday 21st June with daily performances at 11.50am on Friday, Monday and Wednesday and at 11am on Tuesday. It must have done well during the opening weekend for it to get a second week. A message about the film on Premier Christian Radio’s website reads: “I just got back from seeing “The Shack” as my daughter, not the least churchey, wanted to see it. I think we both cried all the way through it. It is a piece of poetry well-made and not in the least banal or insipid. Go and see it if you haven’t already.”

Please use this bus if you can to retain the service. Further information can be found on the notice board in the Hall of Friendship.
