THE OSCAR winning Whiplash, which saw JK Simmons take the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, is to be screened in the Town Hall Theatre.
The screening is one of two Galway Film Society events taking place in the town Hall. Whiplash is on Sunday, while The Case Against 8 is on Wednesday March 18.
In Whiplash, gifted jazz drummer Andrew has been accepted to a prestigious music conservatory only to find his teacher Fletcher is brutal, bad tempered, demanding, and sometimes violent.
The Case Against 8 (2014 ) is a documentary of the epic five-year legal battle that overturned a controversial US constitutional amendment. It follows the plaintiffs - two gay couples who find their families at the centre of the same-sex marriage controversy. It won the Audience Award at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival and Best Director at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
Both films are screened at 8pm. Tickets are available from the Town Hall through 091 - 59677 or www.tht.ie
