|Youghal Cine Club|
‘Yew Wood Venues’ – Youghal’s Premier Venues is proud to launch the newly formed ‘Youghal Cine Club’, in The Mall Arts Centre, Youghal on Thursday 28th June 2012 at 7.30 pm with a screening of Oscar winning film, ‘The Artist’.
The Club will continue a long tradition of interest in cinema in Youghal, and will form part of ‘Access Cine Club’ which is the resource organisation for regional cultural cinema in Ireland. Speaking in advance of the launch, Events Manager, Clodagh Mahon commented: “This is a wonderful opportunity for us in Yew Wood Venues to bring cinema back to the people of Youghal once more. We have planned a season of monthly screenings of feature films, and the beauty of the club is that the choice of film will be driven by the members. Membership is free with a charge of €5 per show.” Said Clodagh.
Although a recently produced film, the launch film, ‘The Artist’ encompasses modern technology with the classic black and white film genre. The film is a silent movie, screened in black and white and projected in the old-fashioned boxy Academy ratio, with its occasional lines of dialogue printed on intertitle cards. It falls into the long tradition of movies about the movies, and centres on an established film star and a beguiling young actress in late Twenties and early Thirties Hollywood, during the rise of the talkies.
Youghal Cine Club hopes to encourage those with a love for cinematic art to become active members. Ian McDonagh, Arts Officer with Cork County Council congratulated Yew Wood Venues for their initiative insisting the venture was a ‘very valuable development for film in County Cork’. Cork County Council is one of the key supporters of the club.
