A Glasgow cinema is ushering in spooky season by hosting a series of special screening events showcasing some of the best loved halloween films of all time.

Vue Glasgow Fort will host a "frightful" array of screenings including a special 35th anniversary of cult sci-fi classic Ghostbusters in the run up to Halloween.

The classic 80s horror-comedy is more likely to make audiences laugh than scream, but cinema bosses say are determined to "get people in the spooky spirit for the Halloween season."

And true horror fans are being urged not to miss the debut of Doctor Sleep, the sequel to Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece The Shining when it is released on October 31.

Johnny Carr, event cinema manager at Vue UK and Ireland, commented: “We are thrilled to present a whole lot of spooky at the big screen this Halloween."

"It’s time to ramp up the scares and screams and to watch these haunting performances on the big screen. It is the perfect combination of timeless classics and modern adaptations to suit all audiences.”

The intense horror, starring Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran and Ewan McGregor, explores addiction and the haunting effects of childhood trauma.

The synopsis of the film reads: "Time has passed since the nightmarish events at the Overlook Hotel but Dan Torrance is forced to face the terrifying demons of his past to save a similarly gifted young girl who desperately wants to escape a sinister cult."

Tickets for all shows are available online.
