About The Commitments: "The Commitments tells the story of a group of working class kids in the north side of Dublin who form a band to play American soul music.  Funny, touching and so realistic you can practically smell the beer and cigarettes, Alan Parker’s ebullient 1991 musical is based on a novel by Roddy Doyle and won  4 BAFTA awards including Best Film and Best Direction. Featuring a young Glen Hansard who went on to star in another acclaimed Irish musical, Once, and a killer soundtrack stocked with soul classics, this one’s a rollicking good time." – D.O.

Cash bar, light snacks (including popcorn!), free parking right outside!
