Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm

“Ken Loach has taken a despicable episode of modern Irish history—the 1933 deportation without trial of one of its own citizens, James Gralton—and made a surprisingly lovely, heartfelt film from it with Jimmy's Hall.” Scott Foundas, Variety. In 1921, Jimmy Gralton's sin was to build a dance hall on a rural crossroads in Ireland, where young people could come to learn, argue, and dream, but above all to dance and have fun.

109 minutes; PG-13
