New Release

Members’ Free Preview of Brooklyn, 1 November

Sunday 1 November, 11.00am (10.30am at Exeter Picturehouse)

Join us for a free preview of Brooklyn. 


Director: John Crowley.
Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent. Ireland/UK 2015. 112 mins.

Set in the 1950s, when Irish economic migration was at its height, this good-hearted adaptation of Colm Tóibín’s bestseller stars Saoirse Ronan as Eilis Lacey, who leaves rural Wexford for a menial job and a rackety boarding house in Brooklyn, New York. Run by the sharp-tongued Mrs Kehoe (Walters, hilarious), her new digs lead to a mutually supportive relationship with a local priest (an avuncular Jim Broadbent), chaste church socials, and eventually a romance with Tony, an Irish-American boy (Emory Cohen).

Ultimately Eilis has to choose between her new love and a beau back home (Gleeson), and between the life she left in Ireland and the one unfolding in the New World. Nick Hornby’s sensitive but never syrupy screenplay is perceptively implemented by director John Crowley.

A real gem of a movie” ★★★★★ – Charles Gant, Heat

  1. is the preview of brooklyn on at the gate piucturehouse notting hill gate london as it is not on the list however email sent to members suggests it is

    • Sorry Kay, we experienced some technical difficulties with our systems on Thursday. We’re going to drastically change how we issue tickets for our free members’ previews going forward.

  2. Tickets for this event are not available at the time advertised and there are apparently technical problem preventing any phone purchases -yet again the booking system proves to be VERY POOR

  3. I have been searching for a way to book Brooklyn and it does not exist on the Duke’s of Komedia site. Most frustrating to offer a ticket and then not make it available! Stephen Quinn

    • Very sorry to have caused any frustration Stephen, we experienced a number of technical issues with this preview. We’re going to drastically change how we issue tickets for our free members’ previews going forward.

  6. No link for my cinema despite being listed. So I call. After half hour on hold a sour girl tells me to book on the website. How, exactly? No, I won’t be renewing my membership.

    • Sorry about this Trent. We’re going to drastically change how we issue tickets for our free members’ previews going forward. Will pass your comments onto our customer service manager also.
