The Wild Good Lodge Movie, which premiered a year ago this week, will screen twice at the IMC Cinema in Dundalk this coming weekend.
The two screenings – which are made made to coincide with the first anniversary of the locally made film’s release in October of last year – will take place on Saturday at 8pm and again on Sunday at 6pm. Tickets will be available to book online on the IMC Cinemas website later on Tuesday.
The movie, produced by local man Willie Martin, is based on the Wild Goose Lodge burning in Reaghstown in Ardee in the 19th century. It was filmed around Reaghstown, elsewhere in Louth, Meath and in Carrickmacross also.
As well as featuring established stars such as Dave Duffy in the lead role of Father McCann, much of the cast is made of people local to the Reaghstown area. Familiar faces such as Stephen Boylan, Hughie O’Neill and Steven Campbell have significant roles in the feature, with virtually the entire support cast made up of locals – and the occasional cameo from well known faces like Finbarr Fury, John Connors and Joe Rooney.
Last year the film was afforded a glitzy premiere at the Savoy Cinema in Dublin and was shown in 11 cinemas nationwide, including the IMC in Dundalk and The Arc in Drogheda.
