Araluen Arthouse Cinema: Jimmy’s Hall

(IRELAND/UK) – M

Ken Loach revisits the familiar subject matter of Irish Independence with Jimmy’s Hall. The film is about James Gralton, the only person to ever be deported from Ireland. Gralton was an Irish communist leader who took US citizenship after emigrating there in 1909. However, he returned to Ireland and started a dance hall in Effrinagh, County Leitrim and used the venue to propagate his political views. This was opposed by the Catholic clergy and eventually led to a shooting. This lead to Gralton being arrested and deported to the US in 1933 by the government led by Eamon de Valera.
