GLASGOW'S iconic Duke of Wellington statue and the late legendary actor Sir Sean Connery will feature in a new bespoke mural located in a city centre cinema which officially opens today.

Renowned Glasgow-based graffiti artist Conzo was tasked with creating the one-off piece of art for the Vue Glasgow St Enoch.

His new work can be found on the ground floor of the cinema. It has an eye-catching design which depicts the Duke of Wellington statue relaxing in a recliner in front of the big screen with a tub of popcorn. The Duke’s horse can be seen in the background alongside the Finnieston Crane.

Some of Scotland’s best-loved actors feature on the screen including Sir Sean Connery who died late last year and Michael Clayton actress Tilda Swinton.

Chris Jackson, general manager at Vue Glasgow St Enoch, said: “We are delighted to be able to open our doors and this brilliant mural is the perfect way to mark our arrival in the city centre with references to iconic actors, films, Glasgow landmarks and the big screen experience.

“Glasgow has a long heritage with film, once being dubbed the cinema city as it had more than 100 cinemas in the 1930s.

"In more recent times it has become the backdrop for big Hollywood blockbusters. Vue Glasgow St Enoch will build on the great heritage Glasgow has with cinema.

“We are excited to strengthen our presence in Glasgow, bringing the latest concepts in the ultimate big screen experience, with state-of-the-art pin sharp projection through Sony 4K digital projection and amazing surround sound from Dolby 7.1. Three of the screens will also be 3D.”
