Event Details

In the Hippodrome’s heyday youngsters could get their cinema ticket in exchange for a jeely (jam) jar. Once a season we’ll give you the chance to revive the tradition, you can bring a clean jeely jar with matching lid and get two tickets for the price of one. 

Gather the family for a special Hippodrome Halloween-themed screening of the beautifully animated tale of a misunderstood boy who takes on ghosts, zombies and grown-ups to save his town from a centuries-old curse.  Expect spooky scares and plenty of ghoulish gags all bound up in an entertaining story with a heart-warming message.

Wear your creepiest costume to be in with a chance of winning our fancy dress competition.  Hippodrome ticket prizes up for grabs for the scariest and most creative outfits at both our Jeely Jar Special and Sunday midday screenings!   Our café will be serving spooktacular refreshments and there will be spine-chilling special effects in the auditorium. 

Our screenings of Paranorman will be preceded by Bench (dir. Rich Webber /UK / 2020 / Animation / N/C all ages / 2 min) A short film about sharing…. Presented as part of Glasgow Short Film Festival’s ‘Shorts in Support’ scheme, funded by Film Hub Scotland

Dir. Chris Butler & Sam Full / USA / 2012 / 1h 32m

With: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, John Goodman
