Foyer Beo at Glór presents Café Orchestra

Glór launches its regular late and live club, Beo, with the fantastic Café Orchestra. Whether you'd like to sip a drink, mingle and soak up the atmosphere or be tangoed across the foyer, be sure not to miss a wonderful evening.
Café Orchestra is an Irish band with an international attitude. Their music combines many different elements including the tango music of South America along with a more mellow jazz-influenced European sound. Purveyors of fine ambience, they have a reputation for being one of the best live acts in Ireland.

Glór Film Club presents Into the Arms of Strangers

Directed by Mark Johnathan Harris, 2000, UK/US
Into the Arms of Strangers, which won an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature in 2002, tells the story of the Kindertransport - the pre-war evacuation of more than 10,000 mainly Jewish children to England from Nazi-occupied Europe. Harris has gathered together a sample of survivors and allowed them to tell their stories. This is not a depressing film. It is a celebration not of the largeness of the lives lived but of the fact that those lives were lived at all.

Fri, 25 Oct 8pm €17
Seán Keane

Glór brings you Irish Music Magazine's Performer of the Year for two year's running. Seán has also been labelled 'the fastest rising star of the Irish music scene' by The Irish Times. The Galway man is a consummate professional with a voice like golden syrup trickling over the gravel of a Connemara stream. Promises to be a wonderful evening.

Sun, 27 Oct 8pm €6
Glór Film Club presents The Princess and The Warrior

Directed by Tom Tykwer, 2000, Germany
