21ST SAT – 20.20 | DARK SKIES: INVASION: ALIENS ON 70MM [SOLD OUT]
‘This time it’s war’ declared the tag line, a promise director James Cameron delivered on in spades for this truly epic sequel to Ridley Scott’s ground-breaking original.

22nd SUN – 18.15 | DARK SKIES: INVASION: INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS
Of the many versions of Jack Finney’s highly influential 1955 novel The Body Snatchers, which sees the populous of San Francisco being replaced by emotionless extra-terrestrial ‘pod people’, Philip Kaufman’s unsettling, atmospheric sci-fi-cum-horror movie is arguably the most successful. Screening as part of our Dark Skies season, with a €35 multipass available.

24th TUES – 18.15 | DARK SKIES: INVASION: ALIENS ON 70MM
‘This time it’s war’ declared the tag line, a promise director James Cameron delivered on in spades for this truly epic sequel to Ridley Scott’s ground-breaking original.

25th WED – 11.00 | WILD STRAWBERRIES: MONEY MONSTER 
The charismatic combination of George Clooney and Julia Roberts lends a lightness to this fast-paced thriller merging the worlds of TV and high finance, when a distressed failed investor, Kyle (Jack O’Connell), turns up with a gun on the set of Clooney’s live finance show.

25TH WED – 18.15 | BIGGER PICTURE: VICTOR/VICTORIA
This hilarious and over-the-top classic stars Julie Andrews as the down on her luck, Paris-based singer who, spurred on by her chancer of a fellow singer/agent, Toddy, decides to try her luck at posing as a man and, in turn, posing as a female impersonator.  Introduced by TV and music producer and self-confessed musicals aficionado, Bill Hughes.

25TH WED – 18.40 | FEAST YOUR EYES: SUMMER 1993
Menu will include a choice of Pollo Al Ajilo, a traditional Spanish chicken casserole dish in a garlic sauce; Paella A La Marinera, served with saffron rice; and a Garlic and White Bean Stew, served with Gremolata.

26TH THUR – 18.15 | DARK SKIES: INVASION: ALIENS (70MM)

27th FRI – 11.00 | WILD STRAWBERRIES: MONEY MONSTER 
The charismatic combination of George Clooney and Julia Roberts lends a lightness to this fast-paced thriller merging the worlds of TV and high finance, when a distressed failed investor, Kyle (Jack O’Connell), turns up with a gun on the set of Clooney’s live finance show.

28TH SAT – 20.30 | DARK SKIES: INVASION: THE THING
One of the few remakes to improve upon the original (1951’s The Thing from another World) John Carpenter’s incredibly tense and atmospheric sci-fi horror finds a team of American researchers in Antarctica, led by the taciturn MacReady (Kurt Russell) grappling unsuccessfully with a recently defrosted, shape-shifting foe of alien origin. Screening as part of our Dark Skies season, with a €35 multipass available.

29TH SUN – 11.00 | IFI FAMILY: COOL RUNNINGS
Time to forget the football with this hilarious sports comedy that combines reggae sounds with the unlikely Jamaican sport of bobsledding.

29TH SUN – 13.00 | MYSTERY MATINEE
It’s the ultimate surprise film, with no clues – only that it will be a film released since the dawn of cinema, more than 100 years ago! Tickets are just €5, so why not take a chance?!

29TH SUN – 15.30 | DARK SKIES: INVASION: MARS ATTACKS!
Tim Burton’s irreverent love letter to his precious ‘50s sci-fi B-movies was – then and now – an expensive, deliriously over-the-top folly; there is a sense of a lucrative director being indulged, but for all that, Mars Attacks! stands as a breathlessly entertaining romp. Screening as part of our Dark Skies season, with a €35 multipass available.
