The Greatest Showman Afternoon Sing-Along

From: 15 Sep 2018
To: 15 Sep 2018
Hugh Jackman leads this high energy original musical, inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, that celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. Lyrics will bounce along the bottom of the screen for musical numbers, so warm up your singing voice on the way!


The Ten Commandments: Making Miracles (2011)

To: 15 Sep 2018
Join us to mark the opening of Patrick Hough’s exhibition with a special screening of the 2011 documentary The Ten Commandments: Making Miracles.

EXHIBITION: Patrick Hough

From: 15 Sep 2018
To: 26 Oct 2018
The work of Patrick Hough examines the steadily blurring line between the real and the artificial, and the increasingly intimate interplay between physical objects and their virtual counterparts. Within this exhibition, the artist’s first institutional solo exhibition in Ireland, forgotten artefacts from the Hollywood Dream Factory – props and décor from abandoned film sets – take on a new life as precious mementoes of cinema history: replicas and fakes that have acquired a strange kind of authenticity. Moving fluently between definitions and across formal boundaries, his work makes us look again at the uncertain nature of what we think we know and see.

From: 17 Sep 2018
To: 17 Sep 2018

The Tales of Hoffmann - Irish National Opera

From: 20 Sep 2018
To: 20 Sep 2018
Offenbach was dubbed “the Mozart of the Champs Élysées” by Rossini. His lyrical, effervescent final opera, left unfinished at his death, with its plot of strange, outrageous loves, an ever-present evil genius, not to mention the famous Barcarolle (borrowed from an earlier work) and an aria for a wind-up mechanical doll, is a treasure-trove for an imaginative director.


Culture Night with Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh

From: 21 Sep 2018
To: 21 Sep 2018
Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh makes music on a 10-string fiddle called the hardanger d'amore, and travels the world as a solo musician, in various duos, and as a member of two bands, The Gloaming and This is How we Fly (who are currently artists-in-residence at Solstice). Caoimhín has made fifteen recordings to date, ranging from quite traditional to fairly out there, and continues to explore the region where traditional music begins to disintegrate.


Incredibles 2 (2018) - incl Autism Friendly Screening

From: 22 Sep 2018
To: 22 Sep 2018
Autism friendly screening 11:00am. In Incredibles 2, Helen is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet, Dash and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone by their side.


The Happy Prince (2018)

From: 26 Sep 2018
To: 26 Sep 2018
The last days of Oscar Wilde, living in exile in Europe, are vividly evoked in this career-defining performance by Rupert Everett, physically and emotionally embodying the literary genius. His body ailing, his mind spinning, he survives by falling back on the flamboyant irony and brilliant wit that defined him.

To: 10 Oct 2018
One summer at a Russian lakeside estate, friends and family gather for a weekend in the countryside. While everyone is caught up in passionately loving someone who loves somebody else, a tragicomedy unfolds about art, fame, human folly, and the eternal desire to live a purposeful life. Saoirse Ronan and Annette Bening lead this exploration of the obsessive nature of love, the tangled relationships between parents and children, and the transcendent value and psychic toll of art.
