A month from today, on Friday June 15, 2007, the Irish movie Once opens at the Tivoli in Kansas City.
Update: Once has been held over again and again until September 6, 2007.
Location: Westport Manor Square at 4050 Pennsylvania
Phone: (913) 383 7756 for times of showings
It’s a kind of a musical, and features Glen Hansard of The Frames, who - much as we don’t talk about it anymore - you in Kansas City may remember from The Commitments all those years ago, where he played Outspan.
Once also stars Czech musician Marketa Irglova, and we’ve featured the collaboration of Hansard and Irglova on Irish KC before.
If you’ve not been keeping up with a changing Ireland, this film is another slice of what being Irish means to some people.
