#244. The Grosvenor, 24 Ashton Lane, Glasgow
The Grosvenor is a fully licensed movie theatre, cafe, and vinyl-only music bar. To me, this is the blueprint for how you make a small, independent theatre that thrives in the era of mega-screen complexes. I drank a cold and delicious 500 ml bottle of Heather Ale from Fraoch (an imprint of William Bros. Brewing) while enduring "The Avengers" (or "Avengers Assemble" as it is known here in the UK) -- we had already seen the other two films showing this day.
Its location on Ashton Lane with immediate access to the city's thriving hipster scene certainly helps.
