Through September 2nd, 2015
Tickets:$12/$9 Film Festival Membersjimmy-teaser
From acclaimed director Ken Loach comes a beautiful period piece,“Jimmy’s Hall” that was a hit at the Cannes, Tribeca and Los Angeles Film Festivals. In 1921 Jimmy Gralton’s sin was to build a dance hall on a rural crossroads in an Ireland on the brink of Civil War. The Pearse-Connolly Hall was a place where young people could come to learn, to argue, to dream but above all to dance and have fun. As the hall grew in popularity its socialist and free-spirited reputation brought it to the attention of the church and politicians who forced Jimmy to flee and the hall to close. This film will be shown in the Mary D. Fisher Theatre. For more information, showtimes or to purchase tickets please visit the Sedona International Film Festival.
