Four months after the devastating fire that ripped through Glasgow's historic School Of Art and damaged numerous local buildings, the CCA is reopening to the public. From noon tomorrow its regular programme of film screenings and events will be back in business, and the Saramago Café Bar will also reopen.

"We've got a fantastic programme of exhibitions, gigs, films, workshops and festivals lined up over the next few months. We've been overwhelmed by the huge support we've had throughout this - thank you to everyone for their support," said Head of Operations Ailsa Nazir.

The following week's events will include films from Screening Irish History and Matchbox Cineclub, whose four day #WeirdHorror event will entertain fans over Halloween. It includes Lair Of The White Worm and Beyond The Black Rainbow.

The CCA had originally been expected to reopen in September, when delays led to concerns about its future.
