Bronagh Gallagher Hails Pulp Fiction Triumph
Derry actress featured in Tarantino's Palme d'Or winning film delighted for its big screen return after winning 30 Under 30 poll
Quentin Tarantino’s iconic crime drama Pulp Fiction has been announced as the winner of Northern Ireland’s most popular film to watch on the big screen before the age of 30 in a hotly contested online vote.
The film, which features Derry born actress Bronagh Gallagher, will be screened at Strand Arts Centre on Thursday, October 6 as part of ’30 Under 30’, a season of films for young film fans being presented by the venue along with Queen’s Film Theatre, Belfast Film Festival, Cinemagic, and the Nerve Centre.
Gallagher, who shares one of the Palme d'Or winning film's most memorable scenes alongside John Travolta and Uma Thurman, said she was delighted with the news:
'I think it’s fantastic that after more than 20 years Pulp Fiction is still being discovered by a new generation of audiences. The opportunity to see the film in its spiritual home – on the big screen – will be amazing and I’d like to thank the team behind ’30 Under 30’ for making this possible.'
Pulp Fiction was the winner out of a shortlist of 13 titles in the ’30 Under 30’ Audience Vote, including The Breakfast Club, Dead Poets Society and Goodfellas.
Tickets for the special screening at Strand Arts Centre are £4 and can be booked online at www.30under30.co.uk
‘30 Under 30’ has been made possible by Film Hub NI with the support of the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery.
