Yep tonight it is
TICKET sales have been brisk for the special 007 screening of the new James Bond film, ‘Quantum of Solace’ in Wexford later this month.
Wexford cinema-goers will be among the very first in Ireland to enjoy the new Bond film which is being screened at the new Omniplex cinema in Drinagh on Thursday, October 30 at 7 p.m. The special advance screening of the highly-anticipated film will run in conjunction with an associated gala charity evening and charity for IceAid.
The international charity IceAid, whose director is Padraig Grant, the Wexford-born international photographer and whose patron is Wexford author Eoin Colfer, has secured the regional charity screening of the movie.
‘Quantum of Solace’, starring Daniel Craig as Bond and Judi Dench as M, will be screened in Wexford just a day after the world premiere in London and a day ahead of general release in Dublin and nationwide as a gala fundraiser for a vital IceAid children’s project in West Africa the Alfred and Agnes Memorial Orphanage in Monrovia, Liberia. Tickets for the gala evening, which include admission to the film, are 50 each and the charity hopes to raise 10,000 in total that night.
‘Ticket sales have been very brisk,’ said IceAid Ireland CoOrdinator Rosemary Hayes, who added that only 100 tickets remain.
A number of items will also be auctioned during the evening including a Wexford Youths signed jersey, a jersey signed by the Irish soccer squad and a Padraig Harrington shirt, worn during the British Open.
There is also a weekend away up for grabs, courtesy of the Talbot Hotel, among other prizes.
Ticket numbers are limited and anyone planning to attend should book online at www.iceaid.org. Tickets can also be obtained by contacting Rosemary Hayes on 085-2819700 or at Whites for Music in Wexford and Enniscorthy.
