We have 20 pairs of tickets to giveaway for the gala opening night of the John Ford Ireland symposium.

The opening night will take place in the Savoy Cinema in Dublin on Friday, June 6 from 7pm.

The Symposium Opening Night celebrates the 75th anniversary of Ford’s Golden Year of 1939 at the historic Savoy Cinema with a discussion and presentation reflecting on this monumental time in Hollywood, followed by the screening of the classic western from that year, Stagecoach, starring the indomitable John Wayne.

John Ford made not one, but three major films in 1939; the westerns Stagecoach and Drums Along the Mohawk and the historical drama Young Mr. Lincoln. All three films received Academy Award nominations that year, with 10 in total, Stagecoach eventually winning two.
