Not Another Teen Season at Pálás Cinema

The Connacht Hotel


It’s looking like a long, hot summer at Pálás with a celebration of the filmic right of passage that is the teen movie that will carry you all the way to autumn.

Taking you on a journey through the very best the genre has to offer and right across the decades including 1973’s AMERICAN GRAFFITI, an ode to Queen of the 80’s Molly Ringwald with both PRETTY IN PINK and THE BREAKFAST CLUB, 1996’s supernatural horror THE CRAFT, and of course the classic genre satire NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE from 2001. Also included are more recent titles such as GIRLHOOD, EIGHTH GRADE and David Freyne’s 2020 queer coming of age tale DATING AMBER.

There will be some one-off events which include a big finale CARRIE Prom Party hosted by Drag Queen Blondie, a homage to the era with a TEN THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU 90’s theme night, you can sink your teeth into a TWILIGHT Marathon and look out for plenty of surprises throughout.
