Cinema Book Club: Brooklyn at Pálás Cinema

Saoirse Ronan plays an Irish immigrant who lands in 1950s Brooklyn, where she quickly falls into a new romance. When her past catches up with her, however, she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.

Ahead of this month’s sold-out Cúirt reading with Colm Tóibín from his forthcoming novel Long Island, the sequel to Brooklyn, Cúirt x Cinema Book Club are revisiting the original novel and the acclaimed 2015 film, directed by John Crowley from a screenplay adaptation by Nick Hornby and starring Saoirse Ronan and Domhnall Gleeson.

Cinema Book Club and Cúirt have joined forces for a unique monthly film/book club in Galway, curated and hosted by Cúirt International Festival of Literature in Pálás.

Each month, Cúirt selects a book-to-film adaptation to watch in our cinema and then, in true Cinema Book Club style, they host a discussion afterwards in the Pálás bar. Read the book, then join Cúirt for the film and a discussion.

Great chats, great people and great fun on the third Thursday of every month!

Just show up on the night and join in. Everyone is welcome, even if you haven’t read the book.
