The evening will include a viewing of some of the original cells of Sligo Gaol and light refreshments.

To celebrate Culture Night 2016 Friends of Sligo Gaol are screening the Clint Eastwood’s 1979 classic ‘Escape from Alcatraz’ in the atmospheric and unique setting of Sligo’s old prison on Friday 16th September.

First released in 1979, Escape from Alcatraz is one of the most iconic jail movies every made. 


Frank Morris (Clint Eastwood), a hardened con with a history of prison breaks, is sent to serve the rest of his life sentence at Alcatraz -- America's most infamously brutal and inescapable maximum security prison. Morris quickly realizes the prison's dehumanizing effects and clashes with its cruel warden (Patrick McGoohan). Fed up with life at Alcatraz, Morris and two convict brothers (Fred Ward, Jack Thibeau) meticulously plan the unthinkable: an escape from the island.

Alcatraz was the most secure prison of its time. It is believed that no one can ever escape from it, until three daring men make a possible successful attempt at escaping from the most infamous prisons in the world.


Join us for a fun movie night at the jail!
