Thursday 11th February 8pm The Queen of Ireland
A film like Queen of Ireland is unlike any other film in recent Irish history. The effects of the Marriage Referendum on our society haven’t yet fully been realised, but it’s important that we acknowledge both its importance and its relevance to all corners of Irish life – be it young, old, gay, straight, rich, poor. It was a galvanising experience for us all; it lifted our spirits and made us proud as a nation. So to focus such a momentous event through the prism of a drag artist is no mean feat, but if anyone’s able to do, it’s Panti.
Admission €7 / €5 (Students)
