Wild Strawberries is our bimonthly film club for over 55s.

Brighten up those November days in the company of this lively group of British retirees who move to a newly-restored hotel in Jaipur, Rajasthan. Convinced by the promotional brochures that the new location will lift their lives, they head off with varying degrees of trepidation and excitement only to find that the hotel, run by aspirant hotelier Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel), is not quite the five-star location they had anticipated.

Plumbing, furnishings, dodgy tummies and more play havoc with the new arrivals’ plans (with Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Celia Imrie and others playing their characters with such verve that you’ll forgive the clichés). Performances combined with the beauty of the setting make the Marigold Hotel the perfect destination for a Dublin winter’s day.

€3.85 per person including regular tea or coffee before the screening. Please note that this is a strictly over 55s club only, don’t be offended if we ask you your age!
