Tickets are on sale now.

Saoirse Ronan will be hosting a special screening of her upcoming film, Mary, Queen of Scots, at Rathmines’ Stella Theatre next year.

The event will take place on Friday, January 11 at 5.45pm – one week ahead of its theatrical release.

Following the film, the Oscar-nominee will be taking part in a Q&A where she will talk about her role as Queen Mary, what it was like working with Margot Robbie as well taking questions from the audience.

The description for the film reads:

“Mary, Queen of Scots  explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart.

“Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne.

“But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I. Each young Queen beholds her ‘sister’ in fear and fascination.

“Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence.

“Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty.

“Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.”

Saoirse Ronan earned her first Academy Award nomination for Focus and Working Title’s Atonement, and was again an Academy Award nominee for Brooklyn. She earned an Oscar nomination for her role in Ladybird. 

Tickets for the event cost €25 and are on sale now here. You can check out the trailer for the film below.

Mary, Queen of Scots opens in Irish cinemas nationwide on January 18, 2019.
