Adapted by Nick Hornby from Colm Toibin’s acclaimed novel, Brooklyn is the story of Ellis (Saoirse Ronan) who leaves 1950s’ Ireland to build a life in New York.

There she meets and falls in love with a local boy but a trip home to Ireland reveals another possible love and life. Ellis is faced with the choice of two very different prospects.

Moonlight Flicks – Storyhouse – 5th July to 27th August 2016 – #chesterculture

UntitledFilm fans can once again watch a movie during the popular Moonlight Flicks season at Chester’s Roman Garden from July 5th until August 27th, with over 35 screenings of 9 different films, 5 evenings a week.

Programmed by Storyhouse, the city based arts organisation who will run the cultural centre of the same name, currently under construction on Northgate Street.

The line up with everything from 80s classic Dirty Dancing to post-apocalyptic sci-fi Mad Max Fury Road.

Also in the bill is animated Oscar winner Inside Out, cult hit of 2015 Birdman, romantic drama Brooklyn, iconic road movie Thelma and Louise, tear jerker The Artist, all-time rom-com classic Philadelphia Story and action adventure Jurassic World.

Alex Clifton, Artistic Director of Storyhouse said: “Moonlight Flicks has quickly established itself as a firm favourite in the borough’s summer event calendar. It’s one of those wonderful events that welcomes a real cross section of audiences; families, groups of friends, couples and film buffs. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming movie-goers to the charming Roman Garden once again.

As in previous years Moonlight Flick’s will use wireless headphones to ensure maximum sound quality. Based on last year’s successful season it is expected that over 5000 people will attend the popular outdoor cinema.

Movies are screened from dusk and times vary.
