On Saturday the 19th of May at the start of the May Fair festivities, the Ballyclare Picture House will be hosting the “Archie Reid Cinematic Revival” a night of local music, craic and film linked to Ballyclare and our local director Archie Reid!
Archie Reed was part of a movement of amateur filmmakers that sprang up in NI in the 1960s with Archie joining The Spence Brothers and JJ Tohill in creating maverick work with a singular vision.
Mostly filming around Ballyclare, Archie created work of warmth, with and whimsy, which gently satirised the strangeness of rural life in NI.
