Donabate Parish Hall was the venue for Lambay Cinema Club’s launch on Friday, September 9th, with its very first movie screening. The real deal popcorn whet the appetite of movie goers with the tastefully named film “Licorice Pizza” well received by all. The teenage love story transported the audience to 1970’s Los Angeles with a wonderful soundtrack and period detail as the two main characters Alana & Gary, meandered first love. The club’s organisers Breda Maguire & Larry Carolan would like to thank The Bleeding Pig Cultural Festival for supporting the project and the Parish Hall for giving the use of the newly refurbished facility. Breda (MC for the night) stressed that the success of this newly formed community initiative depends solely on the support of local residents. “Lambay Cinema Club hopes to bring world cinema of various genres to local audiences on a monthly basis.” As part of Fingal Inclusion Week (14th -20th November 2022), Lambay Cinema Club will host a special screening of ”Limbo”. Inclusion Week, seeks to raise awareness of the barriers experienced by citizens of Fingal that lead to social exclusion and promote an understanding of inclusion in Fingal. Limbo is a wry and poignant observation of the refugee experience, set on a fictional remote Scottish island where a group of new arrivals await the results of their asylum claims. It centers on Omar, a young Syrian musician who is burdened by his grandfather’s oud, the king of Arabic music instruments, which he has carried all the way from his homeland. The Guardian described Limbo as “ a gorgeous tragicomic take on the refugee experience” The screening will take place Thursday, November 17th in The Church of Ireland, The Square, Donabate at 8pm.Tickets are available from November 7th via the Box Office @bleedingpig.ie/cinema-club or Eventbrite.eventbrite.ie/e/film-screening-fingal-inclusion-week-2022-tickets-429628459287 All proceeds of ticket sales will be donated to the Irish Refugee Council.
