25TH SAT – 15.40 | ORSON WELLES: THE KILLING
Stanley Kubrick’s invigorating heist film may have some stylistic nods to the great Orson Welles, and it’s always worth rewatching on the big screen.

25TH SAT – 20.20 | THE PUBLIC IMAGE IS ROTTEN
On the same weekend as John Lydon’s Public Image Limited returns to Dublin, both he and his work come under the spotlight in director Tabbert Fiiller’s documentary about the band.

26TH SUN – 15.00 | ORSON WELLES: THERE WILL BE BLOOD
Paul Thomas Anderson’s magnificent achievement with a sterling performance from Daniel Day-Lewis gets an outing on 35mm film. The actor’s magnetic creation of Daniel Plainview has mighty resonance with Welles’ own Charles Foster Kane.

29TH WED – 18.20 | ORSON WELLES: STORIES WE TELL
Sarah Polley’s fine documentary, which has grown in stature since its original release, is an extremely personal work, laying bare the copious secrets and foibles of her parents’ marriage.

30TH THURS – 13.00 | ACCESSIBLE SCREENING: BLACKKKLANSMAN
Spike Lee’s lastest is based on the true story of a black police officer in 1970s Colorado Springs who successful infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan. Presented with Open Captions for the Hearing Impaired.

30TH THURS – 18.30 |LE CRIME DE MONSIEUR LANGE
One of Jean Renoir’s more rarely screened films, charming and lively, this brand new digital restoration shows once again the director’s skill in taking a humanist approach to socio-political commentary.

31ST FRI – 11.00 | WILD STRAWBERRIES: FAMILIA RODANTE
Our monthly over 55s film club, with tickets just €4.25 including a regular tea or coffee. Come along on a ramshackle roadtrip with thirteen members of an Argentinean family travelling 1000 miles in a creaking campervan!
