Celtic Film Series

The Celtic Film series is continuing on one Thursday a month at Granny McCarthy’s Great Room. Dinner of either fish & chips or shepherd’s pie will be served from 6-7pm and the movie will then begin at 7pm. The cost for the meal is menu price and the movie is $5.00 for non-members and free to members.

The film series will concentrate on movies from the Celtic nations, including ones in their native tongues, to present a greater understanding and appreciation of the individuality of each nation.

The first movie shown was Hunger, Steve McQueen’s BAFTA (British Academy of Film & Television Arts) winning film concerning the events which took place in the Maze Prison in 1981; ending with the death of Bobby Sands after 66 days on hunger strike. This is a gripping human story, told without political bias, showing the humanity of those involved in the events.

Our next film in the series is Seachd The Inaccessinble Pinnacle (PG), a Scottish film. This movie is in Scottish Gaelic and was nominated for 3 BAFTA awards. It was filmed on the Isle of Skye and centers around a young man going to visit his dying grandfather. While on this visit the grandfather tells him stories from history.

Please join us for this exciting new chapter for the Celtic movie series.
