Experience the red carpet at the Blue Teapot Gala Fundraiser | Friday 31st March in the EYE Cinema

Roll out the red carpets!

Galway audiences have two opportunities to see the critically acclaimed feature film Sanctuary before it goes on limited general release and support a major fundraiser for the award winning Blue Teapot Theatre Company.

This fabulously entertaining film will win your heart. Set in Galway, it deals in a very special way with the challenges faced by people with intellectual disabilities as they struggle to forge relationships and find love. Sanctuary debuted at the Galway Film Fleadh in 2016 where it won the Best First Irish Feature Award, and is also featuring in Film Festivals in New York, Chicago, LA, Sydney, Melbourne, Vancouver and Brazil.

Afternoon Matinee

Screening takes place at 3.30pm (doors 3pm) and ticketholders will gain admission to the film, free pick’n’mix.

Fresh from winning the prestigious Michael Dwyer Discovery award at this year’s Audi Dublin International Film Festival, the cast of Sanctuary will be in attendance and will also host a Q&A session following the conclusion of the screening along with screenwriter Christian O’Reilly.

Matinee Tickets are priced at €30 and are available via the Town Hall Theatre on 091-569 777 and online at https://tht.ie/2662/sanctuary
