Whale Box-Office Golden HourSeptember 1, 2017
Here Comes The Rain AgainApril 4, 2018
Having pushed the boat out with Studio Ghibli’s silent animated fable The Red Turtle, dug the new breed with The Florida Project and A Man Called Ove, and celebrated the classics with Cinema Paradiso, The Incredibles, Casablanca, and Star Wars: A New Hope, the newly-relaunched Greystones Film Club has been blessed with full houses every time.
Planning to cover as much of the great big wonderful world of cinema in the unique, boutique setting of The Whale, the club faces into a busy few weeks ahead, with goodies planned for their Kids Film Club and their new arthouse strand.
The club are planning on revisiting all three films of the original Star Wars trilogy over the following weeks, by the way – details to follow.
On the newbie front, Loving Vincent (Poland/UK/USA/PG/94mins) is just the sort of biopic that Vincent Willem van Gogh would have loved, given that this ambitious film takes live action and paints every frame in the sort of rich, expressive oils that marked the Dutch Post-Impressionist painter’s signature style. Directors Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman have created a living, loving tribute to one man’s artistic genius, and the resulting wonder is perfect for the big screen. Where there is no escape from all that beauty. Screening on Wednesday, April 11th, you can find out more here.
As an extra-added treat on our A Man Called Ove night, local filmmaker Jake McKone presented his latest short, The Ladies, before the main event, and it went down a storm. And a half. The Greystones Film Club are keen to promote local filmmakers by offering them a big screen for their work – interested parties should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime you can find out more about all of the above, and more, on the Greystones Film Club website. Free to join, the dream is to bring back the joy of having The Ormonde in our town, only, you know, more comfortable. And with a bar.
