North Circular is the multiple award-winning documentary musical that travels the length of Dublin's fabled North Circular Road, where local characters share their powerful and emotive stories, accompanied by traditional ballads and folk music.

North Circular conjures the ghosts of the past while engaging with the conflicts and celebrations of today, with a spooky folk-horror mood and a little bit of Dublin humour too.

Shot in atmospheric black & white in a 4:3 aspect, the film includes performances from the newest stars of the Irish folk scene which is based in the neighborhood including Lisa O'Neill, Ian Lynch (Lankum), John Francis Flynn, Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin and a special appearance by Gemma Dunleavy (Up De Flats).

North Circular has won awards at the Dublin, Louth and IndieCork Film Festivals and made its international premiere at Sheffield DocFest.

Baby Pictures 

Baby Pictures is open to carers and little ones of twelve months and under. As everyone in the cinema is a parent or carer, there’s no need to worry if it gets a little noisy. Everyone understands. Customers not accompanying a baby will be turned away.

The lights are turned up a little bit and the sound is a little softer to create a peaceful environment for you and the baby. It’s just for carers (Mum, Dad, Granny, Granda, whoever it is it looking after the tot) and babies. Up to two adults can come with a baby. Please note: we cannot allow babies over the age of 12 months to come to Baby Pictures.

Baby Pictures is supported by Film Hub NI.
