IFI opens up to some scas­sics

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

The Ir­ish Film In­sti­tute’s re­li­ably packed and fruit­ful Open Day takes place to­mor­row. There will be 12 free screen­ings, in­clud­ing a pre­view of Richard Lin­klater’s up­com­ing, al­ready lav­ishly praised Boy­hood.

Lucky pun­ters can also catch sight of Woody Allen’s Pur­ple Rose of Cairo, Hal Ashby’s Harold and Maude and – hap­pily, for jour­nal­ists soak­ing up their word-count – Andrew Do­minik’s The As­sas­si­na­tion of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Tr­ish McAdam’s 1996 com­edy Snakes and Lad­ders will be get­ting an out­ing.

The event also screens one film voted for by the pub­lic from a shortlist re­cent IFI favourites. Sur­pris­ingly, beat­ing such films as Un­der the Skin and Grand Bu­dapest Ho­tel, this year’s win­ner was Destin Daniel Cret­ton’s drama Short Term 12.
