Presented in association with Museum of the Moving Image

Irish Arts Center teams up with Museum of the Moving Image for a special edition of our Saturday Morning Cartoons, when we revisit the mesmerizing Oscar-nominated The Secret of Kells from Kilkenny's Cartoon Saloon studio. With the Viking hordes approaching, the future of the Book of Kells is in jeopardy and it falls to Brendan, young nephew of the abbot Cellach, to save the day.

This one-off screening on special edition 35mm print will also include a pre-show Irish dance lesson and post-show animation workshop with museum teaching artists.

Tickets will be available from, and include free admission to, Museum of the Moving Image in November.
