‘Citizen Lane’

Followed by Q+A with Director Thaddeus O’Sullivan

Doors 7.15pm

Starts 8.00pm

Tickets £8

Citizen Lane is an innovative mix of documentary and drama that delivers a vivid and compelling portrait of Hugh Lane, one of the most fascinating and enigmatic figures in modern Irish history. A man of multiple contradictions, infuriatingly parsimonious or extraordinarily generous, a professed nationalist and a knight of the realm; a monumental snob and a fearless campaigner for access to the arts.

‘One of the brilliant things a well-made documentary can do is distill a complex yarn into an 80-minute digestible shape, and this story is complicated.’ Irish Independent

‘O’Sullivan’s film provides a real insight into Hugh Lane’s life and legacy, and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor’s performance catches a fascinating, warm, arrogant but overwhelmingly generous man.’  – Sunday Times (UK)
