4th Royal Picture Show is Launched.

Launched at the Hook & Ladder Cafe on Sarsfield Street, Limerick this evening was the programme for the 4th Royal Picture Show.

The Royal is presenting 4 mini film festivals during Limerick City of Culture 2014 in February, May, September and November. Our programme has been fulfilling a promise to satisfy the most demanding cinema-goer with a variety of films (many showing in Limerick for the first time), including new works from local & national filmmakers, classics, musicals and the very best of international cinema.

This fourth weekend of The Royal Picture Show, the proposed programme will include: another Irish language programme for schools, the 1942 black and white Oscar winning classic CASABLANCA on launch night, another sing-along musical screening night in association with Unity Gospel Choir Limerick of MAMMA MIA! THE MOVIE and a unique ‘audience choice’ screening in association with Hook & Ladder “Living Café”.
