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.

 

El Sur thumb

Spain, Italy 1983
95 minutes
Cert: CLUB
 

 

Described as 'one of the best films in Spanish cinema history', this profoundly moving film follows Estrella, a young girl growing up in 1950’s Northern Spain, who wants to reconnect with the southern region in which she was born by trying to better understand her father, a doctor with whom she is close but who never talks about his old life in Andalusia. Suspecting that his secrets may be linked to the Spanish Civil War, Estrella seeks to uncover the mysteries of his past, as she herself grows up. With superb performances from the entire cast, beautifully composed images and a haunting soundtrack, El Sur’s representation of memory, loss and longing is just spellbinding.
