Inside Gilmorehill Centre

Inside Gilmorehill Centre

Recently the Gilmorehill Centre has been serving the University of Glasgow as the Gilmorehill G12 Centre, housing the Film, Television and Theatre Department along with a functioning theatre (the James Arnott Theatre, a cinema (the Andrew Stewart Cinema) and conference centre. There are also modern offices and classrooms. (If you’re looking for the classrooms, there are two ways of getting to them: the long way and the short way. The short way is just right of the entrance, the long way is to the left.)

Interestingly, if you visit the GilmorehillG12 website at http://www.gilmorehillg12.co.uk you will be greeted with the words “Gilmorehill G12 is now closed”. No matter where I look I can’t find any information on why it’s closed, when it closed and what it supposed to be now. The University’s websites either still list it as G12 or ignore the new development completely. Anyone know more about what’s going on with the Gilmorehill Centre, or is it merely a cosmetic change?

    There was an FoI request about why G12 was closed recently on WhatDoTheyKnow.com (an excellent resource, by the way and one that I highly recommend). As far as I’m concerned the reply wasn’t very helpful, but I suspect it’s the best we’ll get:

    • You’re right, the reply wasn’t very helpful, except to clarify that nothing has really changed except for the closing of a small office, if I understood the explanation correctly. What is helpful though is knowing that this site exists, thank you very much for introducing me to it!
