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.

Áille an Uafáis / A Terrible Beauty thumb
Director: Keith Farrell
Ireland 2013
90 minutes
Cert.: CLUB


Cathal Goan will introduce this film.

Áille an Uafáis / A Terrible Beauty is a dark story which does not sit comfortably with the traditional lionised imagery of what transpired during the rising. Firsthand accounts of a British soldier, Irish Volunteer and civilian are interwoven to give a fresh perspective on the events of 1916.

Central to this docudrama is the reconstruction of the Battle of Mount St. Bridge at which a thousand marching soldiers, were caught in an ambush by 17 Volunteers and to quote the historian Joe Lee '13 volunteers took 231 Sherwood Foresters with them to their eternal reward'.
