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.

Treasa Ní Cheannabháin will introduce this film.

This is an immersive and atmospheric documentary account of what it's like to be plunged into the revolutionary maelstrom of Tahrir Square: a world of passionate dedication and confusion; a torrent of YouTube testimony, shifting alliances and a mysterious sense that the army can go overnight from being the good guys to the bad guys and back again. Containing awe-inspiring overhead shots which show people swarming all over the city, the lesson is that only the mass physical presence can achieve dizzying (although short-term) gains. Simply retweeting revolutionary sentiment is not enough. This is a gripping story and it’s legacy is yet to be fully played out.
