What’s On At DCA: February – March, 2012

Earlier this week, DCA revealed their February/March programme and it’s another packed month at your local independent cinema.

Notable highlights include from this month’s programme include: David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, which looks into the turbulent relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung (Feb 24 – Mar 1); Oren Moverman’s Rampart, about a renegade cop battling for his own survival (Mar 2 – Mar 8); and Trishna, Michael Winterbottom’s modern-day take on Thomas Hardy’s Tess Of The D’Urbervilles (Mar 16 – Mar 22).

In terms of new releases, DCA boasts the likes of Like Crazy (Feb 24 – Feb 26), Young Adult (Mar 2 – Mar 8), The Adopted (Mar 2 – Mar 15) and Bel Ami (Mar 16 – Mar 22). And, on the opposite end of the scale, they’ll be showing several vintage classics, headlined by a one-off screening of Otto Preminger’s Laura (Mar 11).

Special events include The Discovery Family Film Club, The Polar Film Festival and Cinema Republic – this month being Carol Morley’s insightful, emotional and horrifying documentary about the death of Joyce Vincent, Dreams Of A Life.

  1. Keen to see Dreams of a Life and Young Adult. Wish I could get up to Dundee. Wouldn’t mind a bit of that Friday 13th double bill either, always liked the 2nd one for some reason.
