1916: The Irish Rebellion.

Narrated by Liam Neeson, this landmark documentary tells the dramatic story of the events that took place in Dublin during Easter Week 1916, when a small group of Irish rebels took on the might of the British Empire. The documentary – featuring a combination of rarely seen archival footage, new segments filmed on location worldwide, and interviews with leading international experts – also uncovers the untold story of the central role Irish Americans played in the lead-up to the rebellion.

Introduction and Comments by Jim Lyons, Honary Consul General and Adrian Farrell, Consul General of Ireland.

The event is free but reservations are required.

After the screening historian Jim Walsh will lead a walking tour around the historic 9th St district, one of the original Irish settlements in Denver. The walk will culminate with a post-screening reception at the historic Casa Mayan restaurant. A separate reservation needs to be made for that reception and can be made here.

The most convenient parking location would be the Tivoli Parking Garage just off Auraria Parkway and 9th.
