16 August, 2016 - by Caoimhe Archibald

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has welcomed news that Moviehouse Cinema is to screen Bobby Sands: 66 days in cinemas outside Belfast.

The East Derry MLA said:

"I contacted the manager of the Coleraine venue of Moviehouse to ask if they planned to show the film.

“The director of Moviehouse cinemas then contacted me to confirm that due to the success of the film and demand for screenings, they now plan to show 66 days in either Maghera or Coleraine cinema over the next fortnight, depending on where it can best be scheduled.

"It is important that as wide an audience as possible has the opportunity to see this important contribution to a better understanding our recent past, so this is welcome news."
