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.

This film deals with what happens when Islamic fundamentalists move into town, enforcing bans on music, soccer, most forms of socializing and uncovered women. Set in the early days of jihadist takeover of northern Mali, it brings to screen the horrible nightmare being endured in many countries at the hands of fanatical religious jihadists. In Timbuktu the local imam calmly argues in vain against the intruders, who insist on imposing their interpretation of sharia on the inhabitants of the town.

Winner of the Ecumenical Jury Prize at Cannes 2014.

This film will be preceded by Maidhm, a short film by Seán Breathnach.
