OUR daily briefing gives you the run-down on the most exciting cultural events going on in Scotland this evening, including Dundee indie rockers, Irvine Welsh and Mean Girls.
FILM: WATCH & WOLF: MEAN GIRLS
The Filmhouse teams up with Watch & Wolf for a truly sensory screening of cult classic Mean Girls. The premise behind W&W’s experiential screenings is that the audience eats and drinks along with the drama. Patrons are given a box of numbered foodie samples (and cocktails too) in which they can consume when given the signal at key points in the movie. A cinematic experience like no other.

Following the release of their latest album The Ropewalk (produced by The Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond. Jr) back in September, the band will be bringing a mixture of new sounds and old favourites along with them.
