Darkest Hour    Dir: Joe Wright    2018   125 mins  Cert: PG

A thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.  Presented in association with Access Cinema.

Tickets €7

a new play celebrating one of Cork’s greatest living legends, Olympic and World Champion runner


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sonia is a play celebrating one of Cork’s greatest living legends, Olympic and World Champion runner, Sonia O’Sullivan.  The play features dramatic visuals and an intense physical performance from Cora Fenton.

A show that relives the heroics and heartache of Sonia O’Sullivan’s sporting career. A woman that captured the spirit of the nation! This is a rollercoaster ride through the highs and lows of the highly competitive and unforgiving world of athletics. All Sonia ever wanted was to run the perfect race. How much would you sacrifice to be the best?
