As our beloved cinemas have been able to re-open earlier, we’re bringing forward our CIFF Film Club ‘homecoming’ in the Gate Cinema with a special preview of new Irish feature ‘Broken Law’ to Thursday, July 30 at 7pm. ‘Broken Law’ is a taut and tense thriller about family loyalty, legacy and how far we will go to protect the ones we love. It will be in cinemas nationwide on July 31 so you’ll have a chance to see it first in the Gate Cinema, Cork City.
