See Once again with Happenings


When Once was first released in cinemas ten years ago it was an unlikely contender to be a hit. Filmed on a shoestring budget, with scenes shot on Dublin’s streets without a permit and starring two non-actor in then-teenaged Markéra Irglová and the divisive Frames frontman Glen Hansard, John Carney’s film ended up making millions at the box-office, placing high on many critics’ end-of-year lists for the strong cinematic year of 2007 and winning the Best Original Song Academy Award for Falling Slowly. It’s a film that has been entered into the canon of Irish favourites, and a great choice to watch on a (hopefully) bright summer evening on a nice cosy blanket. So with that in mind, Happenings in association with 7Up have picked out Once to be the next film for their Open Air Cinema.

Once is, as Happenings say, a film that perfectly encapsulates the magic and heart of the capital city. They’ll be taking over Fitzwilliam Square this Friday July 28 to show the modern-day musical and its story of romance between buskers on Dublin’s city streets. As always, the Irish Village Markets will be present at this event offering food, coffee and sweets and, in keeping with the film’s musical themes, Happenings have promised some extra fun entertainment on the night. A film, some fun and with a bit of luck, a bit of sun, all the ingredients needed for a great evening of summer in the city.

Tickets for this event cost €5 and are available from Usheru now, with tickets also being available from the gate on the day.
