MONDAY 18th MARCH 7.15pm

FILM: I Went Down (1997)

                Grassmarket Community Centre, 86 Candlemaker Row, EH1 2QA

Free, donations requested

 

Director: Paddy Breathnach

Once again we team up with the Grassmarket Community Centre to screen a title

from the Emerald Isle for St Patrick’s Day. This underappreciated comic gem

from the mid-nineties is well worth rediscovery. Git Hynes (Peter McDonald) is released from prison after serving eight months for breaking and entering.

Within 24hrs of his release he will have become embroiled in a whole load of comic scenarios, falling foul of humourless mobster Tom French (Tony Doyle).

 

Paired with an idiot enforcer, Bunny Kelly (an early role for Brendan Gleeson),

Git has to get to Dublin and back with a man Tom really wants to ‘talk to’.

Hilarious fun.

 

 

WEDNESDAY 20th MARCH 7.15pm

FILM: Sing Street (2016)

                Grassmarket Community Centre, 86 Candlemaker Row, EH1 2QA

Free, donations requested

 

Director: John Carney

Sing Street takes us back to 1980s Dublin where an economic recession forces

Conor out of his comfortable private school and into survival mode at the

inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher.

 

He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool Raphina, and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised – calling himself “Cosmo”

and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the ‘80s, he forms a band

with a few lads. The group pours their hearts into writing lyrics and shooting videos.

 

Combining Carney’s trademark warmth and humor with a punk rock edge, and featuring a memorable soundtrack with hits from The Cure, Duran Duran, The Police, and Genesis,

SING STREET is an electrifying coming-of-age film that will resonate with music fans.
