Film Nights

Village Plan – Entertainment

● Film Nights ● Children’s Discos ● Summer Festival ● Arts Festival

What’s happening?

Following the feedback in the Village Plan survey, whereby 136 people said that they would attend film nights if they were available and 15 people volunteered to help organise, a group of volunteers has formed with the aim of putting on a regular film night in the village.

Notifications of film nights can be found on the village news pages. Click here for details.

Everyone is welcome to join the film group or contribute in whatever way they wish. You can use the contact form below to get in touch or request further information.

It would also be great to hear from people in the village, and beyond, regarding what they would like the film nights to entail. What films would you like to watch? What would you need in order to attend? Please comment below, or use the contact form above.

  1. The Projection House would like to thank all who came along and supported the February’s ‘Thriller’ themed film night of Stardust and The Bourne Ultimatum. It was a very enjoyable and action packed afternoon and evening! A magical captivation had grabbed everyone through Stardust, so much so we had almost sold out of popcorn and people were biting their nails in suspense wondering how Tristan Thorn (the hero) would win his fallen star and save her from the clutches of Lamia the deadly witch.

    Even in the infancy of the Projection House events, it’s pleasantly warming to have to put more tables and chairs out for those welcomed extras that turned up later to see The Bourne Ultimatum!! A perfect film to trial our new sound system through. My word it delivered every line, every punch and little bit of detail perfectly.

    We, at The Projection House, like to be timely in our choice of films, choosing The Bourne Ultimatum was of course in line with the eminent news of the fourth part in the saga of the the Bourne films due to be screened in August this year. However, we were very sad to hear of the death of Stardust’s David Kelly the following day on the 12th. He played a marvellous role as the ‘guard of the wall’ who attempts to keep Tristan on the safe side of the wall and the rather mysterious bad elements out. Born in Goatstown, Dublin in 1929 he had an acting CV as long as your Willie Wonkas extendable cane. So in 82 years of his life he reached over 100 noted acting titles, from The Italian Job, to Mr O’Reilly the dodgy builder in Faulty Towers, Albert riddle in Robins Nest, Grandpa Joe in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. So Mr David Kelly, we thank you for entertaining us and making us laugh and the screening of the Stardust was a tribute to you from us.

    Please make a date in your diaries for our next event on the 16th March ‘Irish Night’ A very special night, where the we have the one very entertaining film ‘The Guard’ with Irish stew and we bring you a fantastic band, Wholesome Fish to dance your socks off for the remainder of the night in True St Patricks style, with flowing Guinness and Jameson’s whiskey.

  2. My daughters and friends had a great afternoon playing on the play park in the snow and then coming in from the chill to sit and watch ‘Stardust’ and happily munch their way through your last bags of popcorn! Thanks so much for providing this for us on our doorstep.

  3. Just wondering if any of those involved in the film nights (or not!) might fancy meeting informally / socially once or twice a month to watch a chosen film, have a few nibbles and drinks and share in a Kermodian rant? Interested people can contact via the site or through the comments here.
    Thanks!
    Sarah
