Athlone’s newest club continues to draw large crowds. Audiences were engaged by the classic thriller The Third Man on Tuesday September 23 in the comfortable setting of the Dean Crowe Theatre. Organisers are delighted by the success of the film club and promise audiences many more nights of entertainment in the upcoming season.
The next film You Kill Me is a must see. Showing next Tuesday, October 7 at 8pm it is wonderfully lighthearted and blackhearted. You Kill Me stars Sir Ben Kingsley in a career-high performance as a hit man with a drink problem. Although Frank Falenczyk loves his job with his Polish mob family, he messes up a critical assignment that puts the family business in peril and forces his uncle to send him to San Francisco to clean up his act.
Frank is not a touchy-feely kind of guy, but he starts going to AA meetings, gets a sponsor and a job, and he falls for the tart-tongued Laurel, a woman who is dangerously devoid of boundaries. Meanwhile, things aren’t going well in Buffalo where an upstart Irish gang is threatening the family business. When violence erupts, Frank is forced to return home and, with Laurel’s help, faces old rivals on new terms.
Kingsley and Leoni produce a dynamically playful chemistry while Luke Wilson as his laid-back gay sponsor adds comedic grace notes in this hugely enjoyable romantic comedy thriller
So banish those autumn blues and come along to an entertaining night on Tuesday in the Dean Crowe Theatre. The bar opens at 7.30pm before the screening, so come along early and enjoy a chat and drink before the film begins.
