Studio Night (Mar 17th): Saint Patrick's Day

A selection of acclaimed Irish films (three nominated for best picture Academy Awards) from across the decades come to Movie Night in celebration of Saint Patrick's Day! Just make sure to arrive by 7:15PM if you'd like to help us choose one of the options (which all have English subtitles)...

The Quiet Man [trailer]
1952; romance; 2 hours 9 minutes
A classic-Hollywood-imagined Ireland serves as backdrop to the sweet story of a retired American boxer who returns to the village where he was born.

My Left Foot [trailer]
1989; drama; 1 hour 43 minutes
The inspiring true story of Christy Brown, a man born with cerebral palsy who learned to paint and write with only the use of one limb.

The Crying Game [trailer]
1992; thriller; 1 hour 52 minutes
An IRA terrorist, despite personal misgivings, takes part in the kidnapping of a British soldier. While guarding the soldier, they become friends, and the terrorist makes a promise that will alter his life forever.

The Guard [trailer]
2011; comedy; 1 hour 36 minutes
A gruff, unorthodox Irish policeman joins forces with a strait-laced FBI agent to investigate an international drug-smuggling ring.

We're in the basement of the Hong Kong Brewhouse, our usual venue, which provides plenty of food and drink for you to enjoy with the film.
