ELVIS - Exclusive Screening & Event

6pm Monday, June 13th

6pm Monday, June 13th

Where:  Lighthouse Cinema, Dublin.

IFTA and Warner Bros. Pictures are delighted to host a special Irish Academy screening of the much anticipated Elvis.

Irish Academy members are invited to see ELVIS - an epic, big-screen spectacle from Warner Bros. Pictures and visionary, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Baz Luhrmann that explores the life and music of Elvis Presley, starring Austin Butler and Oscar-winner Tom Hanks.

A thoroughly cinematic drama, Elvis’s (Butler) story is seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). As told by Parker, the film delves into the complex dynamic between the two spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).

"Hugely entertaining" - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

"A star-making, Oscar-worthy performance by Austin Butler.” - Jim Vejvoda, IGN

Elvis will be in cinemas June 24th.
