Murchfield Community Cinema set to host Philomena

First published in News

MURCHFIELD Community Cinema is set to showcase the moving drama Philomena on Saturday, April 12.

When former journalist Martin Sixsmith is dismissed from the Labour Party in disgrace, he is at a loss as to what do.

That changes when a young Irish woman approaches him about a story of her mother, Philomena, who had her son taken away when she was a teenage inmate of a Catholic convent.

Martin arranges a magazine assignment about her search for him that eventually leads to America. Along the way, Martin and Philomena discover as much about each other as about her son's fate. Furthermore, both find their basic beliefs challenged.

Joe’s ice cream will be on sale and details of the exciting summer programme, including a childrens’ matinee, will also be unveiled.

Doors open at 7pm and tickets are £5

The cinema is run by volunteers and full details are available at or
