The Pictures: Last Vegas 

‘The Pictures’ is more than just a film club; it has become a great social network for the over 55’s in Ballymun and the surrounding areas. ‘The Pictures’, takes place in our 211-seater theatre, so you can enjoy the big screen in comfort. This month’s screening is ‘Last Vegas’. Billy (Michael Douglas), Paddy (Robert De Niro), Archie (Morgan Freeman) and Sam (Kevin Kline) have been best friends since childhood. So when Billy, the group's sworn bachelor, finally proposes to his thirty-something (of course) girlfriend, the four head to Las Vegas with a plan to stop acting their age and relive their glory days.
