Cinema Under The Stars
Kaleidoscope’s Cinema Under The Stars at The Hippodrome is the perfect place to kick back and relax with the fam after an incredible day of festival play!
There’ll be fun for all the family with films everyone can agree on - even you Grandad!
Each evening will be a new movie treat, here’s what we’ll be showing:
FRIDAY 8.30pm : BACK TO THE FUTURE
Wait a minute.
Wait a minute Doc.
Are you telling me you built a cinema … out of a Hippodrome?
The way we see it, if you’re going to build a Cinema Under The Stars, why not do it in some style?
SATURDAY 8.45pm : E.T.
No need to phone home.
SUNDAY 8.45pm : JURASSIC PARK
Guess what? Life found a way.
FESTIVAL TOP TIP ALERT!
But that’s not all …, immerse yourself in the moving stories and inspiring animation of Ireland’s very own CARTOON SALOON – a three time Academy Award®, Golden Globe®, BAFTA and Emmy nominated animation studio based in Kilkenny. We’re delighted to be screening two of Cartoon Saloon’s incredible, award winning and astonishingly beautiful works – THE BREADWINNER and THE SECRET OF KELLS.
And that’s still not all!
There’ll be a special live performance & screening by one of Ireland’s most innovative and exciting bands KILA, who collaborated with French composer Bruno Coulais on the soundtracks for Cartoon Saloon’s The Secret of Kells and The Song of the Sea. And then straight after at 8pm, there’ll be a lively Q&A afterwards with Cartoon Saloon and KILA. Get your toe-tapping questions ready!
But wait! There’s more! Can you even believe? Ok great!
We are delighted to host a programme of incredible animated series including Nathan Jurevicius’ ‘Quiggle’ series, Oliver Jeffers’ ‘Lost & Found’, Conor Finnegan’s ‘Becca’s Bunch’ and many more!
