- ONE-OFF SPECIAL ST PATRICKS DAY SCREENING - 

To celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year we're screening one of our favourite Irish films Older Than Ireland (2019) on Wednesday 17th March at Petone, Cuba and Pauatahanui - tickets on sale now! 

Directed by Alex Fegan (The Irish Pub), OLDER THAN IRELAND is a landmark documentary that tells the story of a hundred years of a life as seen through the eyes of thirty Irish centenarians.

Often funny and at times poignant, the film explores each centenarian's journey, from their birth at the dawn of Irish independence to their life as a centenarian in modern day Ireland. Reflecting on such key events as the day they got their first pair of shoes, the thrill of their first kiss, from the magic of their wedding day to the tragic loss of their loved ones, these centenarians have lived through it all.

Having witnessed a century of immense social, political and technological change each centenarian has a unique perspective on life and its true meaning. From the oldest Irish person ever on record, 113-year-old Kathleen Snavely to Ireland's oldest man, 108-year-old Luke Dolan we meet a colourful cast of characters, from all walks of life, from the four corners of Ireland.

These centenarians are our living history and these are their extraordinary stories.
