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.

Dúcheist Frank Ryan

Director: Desmond Bell
Ireland 2012
80 minutes
gaeilge with subtitles
Frank Ryan’s life (born Limerick 1902, died Dresden 1944) remains an enigma. The teenage IRA volunteer, dissident republican and Spanish International Brigade volunteer, ended his life working for the Nazis in wartime Berlin. How could this be? This film employs the imaginative resources of the creative documentary to explore a human story of truly tragic proportions.

Archival image in play with dramatic live action draws us into the core story centred on Ryan's split loyalties. Drawing upon Ryan's letters and journalism the film illuminates the enigma that was Frank Ryan.
