Nic Cage fans rejoice! If it’s been a while since you saw a vintage Cage movie on the big screen, make sure you head to Glasgow’s CCA next month for CAGE-A-RAMA, a two-day festival celebrating the great man.

From his early performances in films such as 1983’s Valley Girl, up to his action hero days in the likes of The Rock (1996) and Con Air (1997), CAGE-A-RAMA is going crazy for Cage over the weekend of 6 & 7 January.

Programmer Sean Welsh says: “It’s high time we brought Nicolas Cage to Scotland. Since Cage appeared in person at the CAGED festival in Austin, Texas, earlier this year, we realised the only way to conjure the man himself was to start our own film festival in tribute. If this doesn’t work, next year we’ll burn a wicker effigy of him in Glasgow Green.”

While Saturday’s action movie trilogy of The Rock, Face/Off (1997) and Con Air is sold out, tickets are still on sale for Sunday’s threesome, Valley Girl, Moonstruck (1987) and Raising Arizona (1987) – visit the CCA website to book now.
