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.

(La Jaula de Oro)

The Golden Dream thumb
Director: Diego Quemada-Diez
Mexico / Spain 2013
102 minutes
Cert: CLUB
 

 

The title comes from a Mexican ballad, Jaula de Oro, about the despair of Mexicans who have actually made it into the US, but find it a "golden cage" because America accepts illegals' cheap labour without allowing them the papers they need to rise beyond the faceless servant class. Despite this, the US is still a magnet for the poor of Latin America. This tough, poetic and absorbing drama tells the story of three Mexican youths, excellently acted by non-professional leads, who battle their way north toward California's supposed promised land.
