Big Screen for Beaufort this Month

Sinead Kelleher

The big screen will come to Beaufort on Friday, May 17 when Oscar winner, BlacKkKlansman, will be shown at the Inn Between in Beaufort at 8.30pm.

BlacKkKlansman tells the true story of Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer from Colorado, who successfully managed to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan and almost became the head of the local chapter.

The film is directed by Spike Lee, an multi-award winning director, writer and producer with an extensive filmography. 

The night's programme will begin with a screening of Damned Peace, a short film by written and directed by Tralee film-maker, Eoghan Hand. The story concerns a ceasefire between two rival gangs. 

Beaufort Film Night is a non-profit community organisation founded by local film enthusiasts. 

Admission to the film is €7 which will go towards covering the motion picture licencing fee and the newly-purchased screen. Beaufort Film Night's Facebook page (BeaufortFilmNight) and Twitter page (@Beaufort_Film).
