Into Film Club Screening: School of Rock (PG)

Sat 22nd Jan: 3pm, An Talla 

How does a slacker get his head round the financial necessity of a job? That’s the dilemma facing unemployed rock guitarist Dewey Finn in this vibrant and uplifting comedy. Deciding to masquerade as a supply teacher at an exclusive private school, he proceeds to educate the privileged pupils on the joys of rock. But the kids have such musical talent that Dewey is convinced they can help him return to the spotlight. So instead of regular lessons, the youngsters form a group – which Dewey then secretly enters in a prestigious ‘Battle of the Bands’.

Drive My Car (15)

Sat 29th Jan: 7pm, An Talla

Two years after his wife’s unexpected death, Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), a renowned stage actor and director, receives an offer to direct a production of Uncle Vanya at a theatre festival in Hiroshima. There, he meets Misaki Watari (Toko Miura), a taciturn young woman assigned by the festival to chauffeur him in his beloved red Saab 900. 

As the production’s premiere approaches, tensions mount amongst the cast and crew, not least between Yusuke and Koji Takatsuki, a handsome TV star who shares an unwelcome connection to Yusuke’s late wife. Forced to confront painful truths raised from his past, Yusuke begins, with the help of his driver, to face the haunting mysteries his wife left behind. 

Adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story, Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car is a haunting road movie travelling a path of love, loss, acceptance, and peace. Winner of the Best Screenplay Award and the FIPRESCI Prize at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival.

The Tiree 10k & Half Marathon is an annual event on the Hebridean island of Tiree. Known for its perfect beaches, clean air, sunshine, crystal clear waters and relaxed pace of life – Tiree is a fantastic place to run. We welcome all abilities whether you walk, jog, run, or race for a podium spot. Tiree is about enjoying the outdoors, the challenge of the race, encouraging each other, and embracing the stunning Hebridean environment you’re about to run through.

The Tiree 10k & Half Marathon started in 2006 and has grown to be a much anticipated event on the island calendar. Visiting runners are welcome along with local residents and we’ve had people travel from as far as Slovakia and Brazil just to do the race. The atmosphere is friendly and continues into the night with the legendary  dance at An Talla. There’s a prize giving with prizes for top overall results, age groups, teams and some spot prizes.
