Letterkenny Lions club are set to host a spectacular screening of the classic film Casablanca.

The event is aimed those who have fond memories of the original film black and white classic.

On Friday 21st March the Letterkenny Lions Club has organised this classic movie to be shown at Century Cinemas with the proceeds going to support the St Bernadette’s Special School Bus fund.

Elaine Bonner of St Bernadette’s commented that it would be great to get strong support to help fund their new bus.

Elaine stated: “It’s brilliant to get the support from local people that will help us to fund our new bus. We use the bus to take our students on excursions and to transport them to work experience. The debt on the bus is a huge issue for us so any contribution is really appreciated.”

Their will be a special‘ “after party” in the Radisson Hotel on the night, which means will mean that old friends and new will get to mingle and compare memories of cinema, music and fashion.

Meabh Conaghan, President of Letterkenny Lions Club said that “people love an excuse to watch an old classic film. We had great fun at the photo shoot with camels, hats and piano players. The crack on 21st March promises to be even better”.

Tickets for the cinema night cost €20 including the refreshments in the Radisson Hotel afterwards.

They are available from Magees Chemist, Clare Clothing and Mac’s Mace.
