Screen Ireland to Host Sing Street Screening Event for Culture Night 2023

Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland is delighted to host a special screening of Sing Street (2016) for Culture Night 2023, bringing the film back to very location it was set and shot in – Synge Street CBS.

The event will launch Screen Ireland’s A Place in Our Story – a series of events for the Irish public marking 30 years of a national agency for Irish film and filmmaking, and paying tribute to the essential place film has in our story, across culture and community.

Desirée Finnegan, Chief Executive of Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland, said, “Screen Ireland is thrilled to host this special screening of Sing Street for Culture Night 2023. As we know from the recent success of National Cinema Day, and the phenomenal year it has been for Irish film – without Irish audiences and their support, participation and pride, Irish film would not have the place it holds today in our cultural story. These screenings are a way to recognise 30 years of this incredible support for Irish stories on screen.”

The screening will take place at secondary school Synge Street CBS, one of the key locations where the film was set and shot in Dublin.

  • Time: Doors open 7.30pm. Screening will begin at 8.00pm.
  • Place: Synge Street CBS Hall (Please enter via the Synge Street entrance).
  • Dress Code: 1980s.
  • Music: Anything but Phil Collins.
