We are delighted to be of the all new redstablesfestival.ie. A festival connecting food, nature and sustainability through a series of talks, demos and tours, and a celebration of local food and producers in the surroundings of St Anne's Park. We are in the middle of an environmental breakdown and need to act accordingly. these screenings and this festival are about spreading that awareness.
The first of our two FREE screenings is The Lorax at 3pm. We will be on the grass beside the carpark at the Red Stables for these daytime screenings, all welcome!
In the walled city of Thneed-Ville, where everything is artificial and even the air is a commodity, a boy named Ted hopes to win the heart of his dream girl, Audrey. When he learns of her wish to see a real tree, Ted seeks out the Once-ler, a ruined old businessman outside of town in a stark wasteland. Upon hearing of how the hermit gave into his greed for profits and devastated the land over the protests of the Lorax, Ted is inspired to undo the disaster. However, the greedy Mayor of Thneed-Ville, Aloysius O'Hare, has made his fortune exploiting the environmental collapse and is determined to stop the boy from undermining his business.
Bring blankets, seats, cushions and warm things, there will be food available from The Olive Room and The Saturday Market.
See you on the grass.
