The St. Patrick’s weekend of 1995 witnessed an extraordinary thing, a world championship boxing match deep in the countryside of County Cork.

One Night in Millstreet not only relives the titanic contest that took place in the Green Glens Arena, but also marks the trajectory of the two competitors.

Fallen Leaves (Kuolleet lehdet) | 81 mins| Finland | Aki Kaurismäki |  Watch the trailer!

Book Tickets!

Yet another heartwarming, delightful treat from the master of Finnish dark comedies, this is a story of two solitary people from Helsinki fighting against loneliness.Shortlisted for the 2024 LUX Audience Award. Award-winning filmmaker Aki Kaurismäki (Le Havre, The Other Side of Hope) makes a masterful return with FALLEN LEAVES, a timeless, hopeful and ultimately satisfying love story about two lonely souls’ path to happiness – and the numerous hurdles they encounter along the way. Set in contemporary Helsinki, and shot through with Kaurismäki’s typically playful, idiosyncratic style and deadpan humor, this tender romantic tragicomedy is a timely reminder of the potency of movie-going from one of cinema’s living legends. Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
