Free Event - Ticketed
Time: Doors 7pm / Start 7.30pm
A special open-air screening of 2016’s runaway hit Sing Street directed by John Carney. The highly acclaimed Golden Globe nominated musical-comedy starring Lucy Boynton, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Jack Reynor, Kelly Thornton and Ferdia Walsh-Peelo tells the story of a boy, growing up in Dublin during the 1980s, who is forced to relocate to a tough inner city public school when the recession hits his family. He escapes his strained family life by starting a band to impress a mysterious girl.
This is the beginning of the eighties and everybody is moving to the beat of Pop music, as the brand-new concept of the music video appears on television for the first time. On the other hand, in Dublin, Conor, a teenager with a sensitive heart, is trying to deal with a tense family relationship, reconnect with his older brother, while dealing with the hostile environment of his new public school… But then one day, he saw her. Tall, with long chestnut hair, a buttery complexion and big, blue eyes, an enigmatically beautiful girl was standing in front of the gate of his school, indolently observing people passing by. Who is she and how could a boy ever get noticed by such a distant girl? Easy… he would form a band! With every lyric Conor writes, the gap narrows and with every song he plays, her heart fills with affection. In a sea of opportunities ahead of them, what does the future hold for a love like this?
