Reminder: The Secret of Kells Outdoor Screening Tomorrow Night

Just a reminder to anyone even close to New York City that The Secret of Kells will be shown outdoors at the fancy sounding Socrates Sculpture Park as part of their 2010 season tomorrow night (July 14th). The event is organized by Rooftop Films, who basically do exactly what it says on the tin, showing films on rooftops!

As you should already know, The Secret of Kells is my absolute favourite animated film of the last couple of years and not just because it’s Irish! The film has had huge success in the US considering that it has received almost no promotion bar word of mouth!

This is an excellent opportunity to experience a wonderful film in an un usual place. Things kickoff at 7:00pm with live music before the film’s screening at 8:30pm.

surprise Oscar nominee for Best Animated Film, THE SECRET OF KELLS
follows the adventures of 12-year old Brendan on a dangerous mission
to help complete a magical illuminated manuscript. Almost entirely
hand-drawn, this dazzling film, made in the iconic style of medieval
art, is a gorgeous antidote to the familiar style of today’s digital
