Cinema Day: Jimmy's Hall
28 August 2017 15:00 » 28 August 2017 17:30
53 Sawmill Road, Ballyclare
price: Donation (£5 min)
Directed by Ken Loach. Jimmy Gralton returns home to Ireland after years of exile. When he - 'an intruder' - reopens the village hall, enabling the community to gather, sing, dance, paint, study & box, the local establishment take a dim view. Intimate venue with limited tickets.
People who think and unite are difficult to manipulate, aren't they? From the moment Jimmy re-opens his hall, the establishment bully and use every means possible to get rid of him and his 'dangerous' hall. Director Ken Loach's 2014 film - set in 1932, post partition, pre 'troubles' - somehow resonates with 2017 Northern Ireland and its current political polarisation.
Please note: The screening is being held in an old farm building. There is no heating so dress according to the weather. Be prepared to use a domestic toilet. Unfortunately, the venue is not wheelchair accessible. This is an intimate and unique venue so expect a 'cosy' experience.
