Rated R | 1h 49m | In English | Comedy/Drama | Watch Trailer Here | Written and Directed by Martin McDonagh With Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and Kerry Condon

Featuring some of Martin McDonagh’s finest work and a pair of outstanding lead performances, The Banshees of Inisherin is a finely crafted feel-bad treat

Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland, THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN follows lifelong friends Pádraic and Colm, who find themselves at an impasse when Colm unexpectedly puts an end to their friendship. A stunned Pádraic, aided by his sister Siobhán and troubled young islander Dominic, endeavours to repair the relationship, refusing to take no for an answer. But Pádraic’s repeated efforts only strengthen his former friend’s resolve and when Colm delivers a desperate ultimatum, events swiftly escalate, with shocking consequences.

-Searchlight Pictures

I consider Banshees nothing short of a marvel.

-Rex Reed., Observer

One measure of the movie’s skill, and its generosity, is that it embraces the wisdom of both its protagonists.

Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

Ignited by career-best performances from Colin Farrell and Bredan Gleason, this new classic from son of Ireland Martin McDonagh brims over with dark comic magic and jolts of bloody scary hell. Fasten your seatbelts for one of the best movies of the year.

-Peter Travers. ABC News

Who Are We

The Downing Film Center is 501(c)(3) member-supported nonprofit arts organization dedicated to presenting quality films, not always available locally, and providing cinematic programming from around the world in collaboration with and for the benefit of the Hudson Valley’s diverse communities. The Downing is a free-speech theater that neither censors nor endorses.

Where Are We

The Downing is located at 19 Front Street in Newburgh, New York, on the bottom floor of the former Yellow Bird Gallery building. Our entrance is directly across Front Street from Billy Joe’s Ribworks. Free parking is available in the Newburgh–Beacon Ferry lot, on Water Street, and in the lot behind the theater (access via Carpenter Street). On weekdays, you may find a spot on Front Street.


When you purchase a ticket at the box office or an advance ticket online, you must select a seat. The Downing has only 56 seats, so please purchase an advance ticket if you have strong preferences regarding seating. The screening room opens 30 minutes before showtime. You may not save seats for members of your party who have not yet purchased a ticket. 


The Downing Film Center is handicapped accessible. If you need our lift and elevator, please let us know in advance. We also ask that you arrive 35–40 minutes before showtime so that we can assist you before the theater gets busy.

We also have assistive listening technology (headphones and closed captioning glasses).
