Free­bie day at the IFI

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Free film alert. Dublin’s Ir­ish Film In­sti­tute hosts an open day to­mor­row, dur­ing which pun­ters can avail of com­pli­men­tary tick­ets to a di­verse se­lec­tion of fine films. Re­flect­ing IFI’s main pre­oc­cu­pa­tions, the event fea­tures pre­views of new re­leases, screen­ings of durable clas­sics and a few ec­cen­tric odd­i­ties.

Seek out Tom Hall’s Sen­sa­tion, a highly orig­i­nal, creepy drama set in ru­ral Ire­land; Philip Sey­mour Hoff­man’s di­rec­to­rial de­but Jack Goes Boat­ing; and a timely un­veil­ing of Mike Ni­chols’s Who’s Afraid of Vir­ginia Woolf?, fea­tur­ing the late El­iz­a­beth Tay­lor’s finest per­for­mance.

Also keep an eye out for FW Mur­nau’s great silent epic Sun­rise, a par­tic­u­lar favourite of IFI programmer Pete Walsh.

First-come, first-served tick­ets for films will be avail­able at IFI from 11am to­mor­row. See ifi.ie.
