We would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused, and thank all customers for their continued patience. The film screening remains an 18+ event.


Detroit, once the embodiment of the American Dream, has now become home to a slow-motion tidal wave of urban desolation. In this celebrated documentary, director Julien Temple paints an evocative portrait of the city. With an even-handed approach the film shows how hope is creeping back into the city, with streets being turned into art, and a thriving music scene emerging.

With the influence of Detroit music from Motown, The Stooges, Juan Atkins, Derrick May and J Dilla looming large over Glasgow clubbing culture, we are delighted to welcome Detroit techno producer Carl Craig to join us for a Q&A after the screening, hosted by Ray Philp (Resident Advisor/The Scotsman/RMBA).

Craig then joins Joris Voorn, Len Faki and more for Arches club night Pressure, from 9.30pm-3am.
