The third film will be shown of the afternoon of May 4th, 2019. Due to the generosity and support of Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affair and Trade, the three film showings will be offered to the public at the Irish Cultural Center with no charge for admission.  The three movies being shown are: “Brave,” “Into the West,” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

1PM January 12th:
“Into the West”

The second film, “Into the West,” is a favorite of quite a few at the Irish Cultural Center. “Into the West” is a tale of two young Irish Traveller boys who come across a magical horse.  Once the horse is stolen, adventure ensues as the two young boys find themselves on a quest to get the horse back. The film showing will start at 1PM on January 12th in the Irish Cultural Center’s Great Hall.

1PM May 4th:
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”

The third film, held on International Star Wars Day, is an unexpected celebration of modern cinema in Ireland.  While “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” takes place in a galaxy far far away, some of the filming was done in Ireland! Join us in wishing “May the 4th be with you,” as we celebrate the film industry in Ireland with the whole family.  The film will be shown in our Great Hall at 1PM and costumes are encouraged!
