Film night dedicated to all things Irish


Following the success of its first two film nights, a group of community-spirited movie fanatics called The Projection House are bringing the silver screen to the sticks again, with a feel of the Emerald Isle to coincide with St Patrick’s Day.

This time Oxton Film Club presents The Guard (15) in the village hall on Friday, March 16, at 7.30pm.

As well as a large screen with sound equipment, there will be Irish stew, Guinness on tap and Jameson whiskey as well as popcorn, ice-cream and non- alcoholic drinks.

The film stars Brendan Gleeson, Don Cheadle and Mark Strong.

It is a comedic, fish-out-of-water tale of murder, blackmail, drug trafficking and rural police corruption.

Two cops must join forces to take on an international drug-smuggling gang, an unorthodox Irish policeman and a straitlaced FBI agent.

Following the film there will be an Irish ceilidh from 9.30pm to midnight with music provided by Wholesome Fish who play a mixture of Celtic and Gipsy-rooted folk through to Cajun, bluegrass, boogie-blues and punk.

Tickets for the film, food and music are available in advance from Oxton Village Shop, Ethel Cottee on 0115 9653477 or Roy Walker on 0115 9653595. Doors open at 6.30pm.
