Movie Memories

Directed by Gwenda Young & Dan O'Connell

Movie Memories is a project supported by Creative Ireland, Cork County Council and University College Cork set up to record cinema-going memories of those living in small towns, villages and rural areas of Cork County from the 1940s to the present.

Participants from all parts of rural Cork, answered the call to share their memories resulting in this delightful short documentary.

Featuring stories of village halls transformed into picture palaces; school excursions to “holy pictures”; fighting off fleas and amorous suitors in the dark; and falling under the spell of movie stars, Movie Memories' story is a universal one as it captures the important contribution made by rural cinemas to community life and community spirit.
