Film News

Fri 5th Oct, the Irish film Jimmy’s Hall (dir. Ken Loach, 2014) will be shown at Espresso Café and Gallery. Deirdre O’Byrne of Nottingham Irish Studies Group will give a brief introduction to the social and political background of the film, which is set in 1930s Ireland. Jimmy Gralton sets up a community hall in Co Leitrim, and runs into trouble with the controlling authority of the church.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A discussion. Pre-booking is essential as this gem of a venue has limited seating. Book here
Venue: Espresso Café and Gallery, 568 Woodborough Road, Nottingham NG3 5FH

Our group didn’t organise this, but we are very happy to spread the news that Black ’47, the new film about the Great Hunger in Ireland of the 1840s-50s, will be showing at Nottingham Broadway Cinema from 19th October. Broadway is a great supporter of Irish film, and can be relied on to let us know about interesting screenings.
Venue: Broadway Cinema, Broad St. Nottingham NG1 3AL.
