Movies@Cinemas Ireland, in conjunction with eOne are hosting a Charity screening of the much anticipated THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN on Wednesday 16th March at 8pm in venues in Dundrum, Swords, Gorey and Dungarvan. All proceeds from the night will be passed on to The Red Cross who have teams on the ground in Ukraine and will continue their work to repair vital infrastructure, support health facilities and help families with life-saving food and hygiene products.
Commenting on the initiative, Graham Spurling, MD of Movies@Cinemas Ireland said “With the horrors of war in Ukraine unfolding before our eyes we cannot stand idly by so we the owners and staff of Movies@Cinemas want to do what we can. By way of offering some support, it is our privilege to be working with an organisation such as The Red Cross to help Ukraine and we ask you to join us in raising much needed funds for everyone who has been effected by the escalating conflict.”
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN tells the remarkable true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a crane operator and optimistic dreamer from Barrow-in-Furness who, with the support of his family and friends, managed to gain entry to the 1976 British Open qualifying, despite never playing a round of golf before. With pluckiness and unwavering self-belief, Maurice pulls off a series of stunning, hilarious and heartwarming attempts to compete at the highest level of professional golf, drawing the ire of the golfing elite but becoming a British folk hero in the process.
Starring Academy Award® Winner Mark Rylance as Maurice, Academy Award® Nominee Sally Hawkins as his wife Jean and BAFTA nominee Rhys Ifans as his nemesis Mackenzie. The extraordinary story of an ordinary man, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN is an uplifting and moving comedy drama about pursuing your dreams and shooting for the stars, no matter what hand you’re dealt.
