Autumn Season 2020 Purchase Tickets
 

Covid 19 Update

On the 6th of October the Irish Government implemented level 3 restrictions across the state. Under level 3 indoor theatre-based events are not permitted. This means that we have to cancel some of the films planned for this season and that our Autumn Season will not begin until 29th of October at the earliest.

A decision on this will be taken and announced here nearer that date. In the meantime we will be contacting all those who have already bought tickets in order to arrange a refund.

An Episode in The Life of an Iron Picker thumb

Nazif barely makes ends meet as he searches daily for scrap metal while his partner Senada tends to their home and their two young daughters. A third baby is on the way but the pregnancy comes to a tragic end and Nazif is left struggling to pay upfront for the treatment that may save his wife’s life. In an inspired coup for cinematic naturalism Tanovic persuaded the actual family who experienced this true story to play themselves in the film, a move which makes it all the more impressive. This is not a comforting watch but is a universal human story at heart, a bleakly compelling family drama with a coldly furious edge of political protest.
