The Innocents is re-released
Jack Clayton's 1961 feature The Innocents - an adaptation of Henry James's story The Turn Of The Screw - will be re-released in Scottish cinemas this month as part of the British Film Institute's Gothic: The Dark Heart of Film project.

It also has a screening in the new year at the Robert Burns Centre in Dumfries (January 27).
Two films by visual artist Phil Colllins - who will transform Queen's Park next year in a major art project for Glasgow 2014 - will screen in Glasgow later this month.
"The meaning of style" was shot with anti-fascist skinheads in Malaysia and features an original sound track by Welsh musician Gruff Rhys (of Super Furry Animals) and Welsh surf band Y Niw.
The screenings take place at The Glad Café on Pollockshaws Road at 7pm on December 15, followed by an artist talk.Tickets, priced at £2.50, are available from themeaningofstyle.eventbrite.co.uk.
