Battelle Film Club presents "One Million Dubliners" - September 23

Battelle Auditorium, 902 Battelle Blvd. in Richland
Starts @ 7:30 p.m.
Cost: $4, tickets at the door

Glasnevin Cemetery is the final resting place of 1.5 million souls; it is Ireland's national necropolis. One Million Dubliners reveals the often unspoken stories of ritual, loss, love, redemption, emotion, history – and the business of death.

But this is really a film about life: the Saint Valentine's Day rush in the florists; the American visitors eagerly searching for Irish ancestors; lost and longed for love; discovery and bereavement; earthy gravediggers and musicians in celebration. Above all, it's the story of an immensely engaging Tour Guide shepherding his charges - and us - through the headstones and monuments, through opinions and beliefs. Filled with the familiar and the fascinating, this is a documentary that offers a glimpse into the unknown, into a world we will all come to share.

Often humorous, always affecting, One Million Dubliners explores life, death and the afterlife, and ends in a way that will stay with you forever. Even in a cemetery you never quite get used to death.

(2014) Director: Aoife Kelleher. Writer: James Mitchell. Genres: Documentary, drama, history. Country: Ireland. Language: English. Runtime: 80 min. Color: Color.

Museum exhibits at The REACH celebrate the natural, scientific and cultural history of the Tri-Cities area. You can find hands-on activities for families on Saturdays. Also, the 2016 REACH Tours are now posted and registrations are being accepted.

REACH Family Fun Workshops will return this October! The whole family can enjoy Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) activities together every second Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until noon at The REACH Museum.
  • October 8th Crystals: Learn how crystals relate to molecular structure in rocks, chemicals, and even food. Observe how they form and use them to make art. 
  • November 12th Clouds & Weather: Learn what makes the wind blow, how to predict changes by watching the clouds, and make your own instruments for recording the weather. 
  • December 10th – Animal Tracking: Winter is a great time to watch wildlife. Learn how to see clues about where animals have been and what they’ve been doing, and how to identify animals by what they leave behind.
Space is limited. Reserve your spot with pre-paid admission (REACH members free) using our online registration form or by contacting REACH Education at (509) 943-4100 extension 113, or paulines@visitthereach.org.
