FRIDAY:

Matinee 10:00am (€3:00)

The Crash Reel (2013) – Fifteen years of verite footage show the epic rivalry between half-pipe legends Shaun White and Kevin Pearce, childhood friends who become number one and two in the world leading up to the Vancouver Winter Olympics, pushing one another to ever more dangerous tricks, until Kevin crashes on a Park City half-pipe, barely surviving. As Kevin recovers from his injury, Shaun wins Gold. Now all Kevin wants to do is get on his snowboard again, even though medics and family fear this could kill him. We also celebrate Sarah Burke who crashed in Park City and died January 19, 2012.

Evening Showing 8:00 pm (€7:50)

Valley Uprising (2014) – In the shady campgrounds of Yosemite valley, climbers carved out a counterculture lifestyle of dumpster-diving and wild parties that clashed with the conservative values of the National Park Service. And up on the walls, generation after generation has pushed the limits of climbing, vying amongst each other for supremacy on Yosemite’s cliffs. “Valley Uprising” is the riveting, unforgettable tale of this bold rock climbing tradition in Yosemite National Park: half a century of struggle against the laws of gravity — and the laws of the land.

SATURDAY: In conjunction with the World War 1 Exhibit taking place

Matinee 3:00pm (FREE SCREENING)

All Quiet On The Western Front (1930) – A young soldier faces profound disillusionment in the soul-destroying horror of World War I.

Evening Showing 8:00 pm (€7:50)

The Blue Max (1966) – A young pilot in the German air force of 1918, disliked as lower-class and unchivalrous, tries ambitiously to earn the medal offered for 20 kills. The famous ‘bridge storming scene’ was filmed using the old railway bridge in Fermoy.

SUNDAY:

Matinee (1) 2:30pm (€7:50)

Holding It Together (2014) – Kate and Des are having some friends over for the evening, and have just found out that their only child is gay. Deciding to keep that news to themselves for now, it transpires that each of their guests has a secret of their own. A comedy of errors ensues as each couple suspects that the conversation hints at their own secret, with everyone wondering what everyone else knows. Confusion and tension mounts at the dinner table as everyone as they try to deflect the conversation. (Q&A with Writer/Producer)

North of the Sun (2012) – Inge Wegge (25) and Jørn Ranum (22) spent nine months of cold, Norwegian winter in the isolated and uninhabited bay of a remote, arctic island by the coast of Northern-Norway, facing nothing but the vast Atlantic Ocean. There they built a cabin out of driftwood and other cast-off materials that washed up on shore, and ate expired food the stores would otherwise have thrown away. But the boys brought with them two items of utmost importance: Their surfboards – perhaps their biggest motivation for the arctic adventure. Because the remote bay holds a well kept secret; Some of the worlds finest surfing waves.
