Strong Donegal demand leads to first Bollywood festival

Rajini-Murugan Bollywood

THE first ever ‘Bollywood’ film event at Century Cinemas Letterkenny is running from this Sunday, January 17, to February 7.

Four new hit Bollywood films are being brought to audiences in Donegal and a new one will be screened every Sunday over the course of the event.

The event came about in response to an increasing demand for Bollywood movies in the Donegal area. Century Cinemas has been regularly showing a new release every six weeks over the past couple of years.


“Any Bollywood film we show gets a good response. Since a lot of other cinemas don’t show them, people come from all over to enjoy a day out with the family,” said Will Quinn, Manager at Century Cinemas.

The event gets underway on Sunday with the first of the four films, ‘Rajini Murugan’, a comedy drama film written by famous Bollywood director Ponram.

‘Charlie’ is about a young, non-conforming woman named Tessa who gets entangled in a cat-and-mouse chase in the by-lanes of Kerala, hunting for a mysterious artist who previously lived in her apartment. (Showing January 24 @12pm)
