Whisky Galore on the big screen at Flowerfield Arts Centre

Mon, February 10, 2020

Flowerfield Arts Centre has partnered with Film Hub NI and the British Film Industry (BFI) for upcoming dementia friendly screenings of ‘Whisky Galore’ on Wednesday 26th February.

Based on a true story, this classic comedy tells the tale of the Todday Islanders off the coast of Scotland, who are suffering a wartime shortage of whisky. That is until they find out a passing ship is carrying 50,000 cases of the spirit, which they plot to salvage without the pesky British revenue officials finding out!

A morning screening, which is dementia and family friendly, will take place at 11am, with cabaret style seating, soft lighting and limited seating for up to 50 places. Admission to this session is free.

The film will also be shown at a later time of 7:30pm, which is open to the general public. Admission is £5 with a discounted price available for group bookings of over 5 people. Booking is advisable due to restricted seating.

Contact the Booking Office on 028 70831400 to secure your tickets or go to www.flowerfield.org for further information.
