Enjoy one of John Ford’s most beloved and personal films, The Quiet Man at this FREE night-time open air summer screening at the Symposium, in Dublin’s cultural heartland Temple Bar.

A true screen classic in every sense of the word, The Quiet Man stars the unforgettable coupling of John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara shot against the lush, wistful backdrop of the Irish countryside of Cong, County Mayo. The film won two Academy Awards, for Ford’s direction and the film’s epic, Technicolor cinematography and has just recently been selected for preservation by the US Library of Congress as being “historically and culturally significant”.


One of the most iconic Irish films ever made which continues to enchant & captivate audiences worldwide and cited as one of the screen’s greatest ever love stories, this screening is the perfect opportunity to introduce a new generation of younger film fans to one of the most popular of Ford’s films with a magical old-style night-time Cinematic experience outdoors.
