It Happened One Night (U)

It Happened One Night

We are delighted to present this unique opportunity to see one of the most entertaining films of all time on the big screen... and in a new 4K restoration too! Winner of the Oscars for Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenplay.


In Frank Capra's acclaimed romantic comedy, spoiled heiress Ellie Andrews (Claudette Colbert) impetuously marries the scheming King Westley (Jameson Thomas), leading her tycoon father (Walter Connolly) to spirit her away on his yacht. After jumping ship, Ellie falls in with cynical newspaper reporter Peter Warne (Clark Gable), who offers to help her reunite with her new husband in exchange for an exclusive story. But during their travels, the reporter finds himself falling for the feisty young heiress. Colbert and Gable make the perfect comedic duo, and together with inspired direction from Capra, make this film the perfect example of that well-known phrase – “movie magic”.

USA 1934 Frank Capra 105m

Drift (15)

Drift

In this powerful, engrossing and poignant emotional journey, a young refugee escapes her war-torn country to a Greek island where she meets a tour guide, and the two become close as they each find hope in the other.


Jacqueline (Cynthia Erivo), a young refugee, lands alone and penniless on a Greek island, where she tries first to survive and then to cope with her past. While gathering her strength, she begins a friendship with a rootless tour-guide (Alia Shawkat) and together they find the resilience to forge ahead. This is an astonishingly confident and deeply moving film, an unarguable career highlight for both Erivo and Shawkat and further evidence that Chen is an important filmmaker, and one to definitely keep your eye on.

Seize Them!

In this hilarious British comedy, an arrogant queen becomes a fugitive in her own land after being overthrown by a charismatic revolutionary, and must face hardship and danger as she embarks on a voyage to win back her throne.


Dark Ages Britain. Queen Dagan (Aimee Lou Wood) is master of all she surveys, with an ego to match - until she's toppled by a revolution led by the charismatic Humble Joan (Nicola Coughlan). The Queen becomes a fugitive in her own land, a hefty bounty on her head. With the help of Shulmay (Lolly Adefope), a former servant with a lot of secrets - and Bobik (Nick Frost), a shit-shoveller who wants more out of life - Queen Dagan must face every conceivable hardship and danger as she embarks on a voyage to win back her throne. She also has to face up to the very worst parts of herself. Can she become Queen again? And can she become a better person while she does it? And what if she has to choose?

Poor Things (18)

Poor Things

Yorgos Lanthimos has created an incredible tale of the fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter, a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter.


Under Baxter's (Willem Dafoe) protection, Bella (Emma Stone in a career defining performance) is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), a slick and debauched lawyer, on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. Free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation. ‘Poor Things’ is an awe-striking visual feast that satisfies the eyes, tantalizes the loins, and feeds the soul. Both incredibly funny and disturbing, sometimes in the same beat, it will surely be knocking on the door of awards voters in a host of categories. Lanthimos (‘Dogtooth’, ‘Killing of a Sacred Dear’, The Favourite’) continues to surprise and astound with every film. (Some subtitles)

Ireland/UK 2023 Yorgos Lanthimos 141m
