Event Notes

× Trail & District Arts Council's MONDAY CINEMA presents


at The Royal Theatre, 1597 Bay Avenue, Trail.

TWO SHOWS! Monday, January 31st: 4 pm and 7 pm

A semi-autobiographical coming-of-age drama film which chronicles the life of a working-class family and their young son's childhood during the Protestant-Catholic conflicts of the late 1960s in Northern Ireland. Buddy (Jude Hill) dreams of a glamorous future that will whisk him far from the Troubles, but, in the meantime, he finds consolation in his charismatic Pa (Jamie Dornan) and Ma (Caitríona Balfe), and his spry, tale-spinning grandparents (Ciarán Hinds and Judi Dench).

With powerful performances and expert direction, “Belfast” is a deeply personal project for writer-director Kenneth Branagh. A drama with heart, the film is the feel-good movie of the year and is also the most nominated with 11 Critics' Choice Award nominations, including Best Director and Best Picture!

"A soaring cinematic triumph." Winner of the TIFF People's Choice Award

Director: Kenneth Branagh/ Cast: Jamie Dornan, Caitriona Balfe, Jude Hill, Judi Dench, Ciarán Hinds / UK / English / 1h 38 mins / Drama / Rating: PG

Branagh has made “… a charming, rose-tinted thank-you note to the city that sparked his dreams and the parents whose sacrifices helped them come true.” New York Times

“Kenneth Branagh makes a masterful memoir of his tumultuous Irish boyhood... the film is both specific and universal, grand and intimate, sweetly romantic and shockingly violent.” - Chicago Sun-Times

“No wonder Kenneth Branagh's funny, touching and vital look at his own coming of age in turbulent Northern Ireland is the Oscar frontrunner for Best Picture. No movie this year cuts a clearer, truer path of the heart. It's his personal best.” - ABC News
